The native and exotic, the soldiers of stem, shrub and tree, the massed battalions of Florida flora: They cradle my home and heart, seeking to overrun them. Viewed from my desk, the forest follows a single live oak of general rank, a stern and unflinching leader who has marched across a century or more to the perimeter of my life, halting sud-denly to study me through the glass „ without sentiment, without sympathy, but also without cruelty. The generals grizzled surfaces riot with epiphytes „ with air plants liv-ing on the tree, not from it: bromeliads, mosses, an occasional orchid and low forests of resurrection fern rising from his reaching limbs like verdant hair. His sorrel and umber bark, the rough skin of the old tree, fades beneath the topside growth like a can yon country gutted with gullies and arroyos, all of it form-ing a rough palette for pink and cream splashes of fungi and lichen. I can afford to like this view and even to be romantic about it because I live „ I work, I eat, I sleep „ about 30 feet beyond the old oak and his forest army. Its beautiful to look at those woods from the air-conditioned comfort of an enclosed room. Living and working in them, on the other hand, as I have done for extended periods in the distant past, requires an adjustment of attitude and fitness most of us may ignore, at pres-ent. But nowadays Im seeing the trees and the forest differently than I have in previous decades. Now, theyre speaking to me directly. Even dreaming and communing togeth-er as trees do (especially in the wind), they also whisper into my thoughts. Not just about sex and l ove, about parents and children, about war and peace or duty and mortality, as they always have. Not even about the unique community of all things living on this green-and-blue planet, including the tortured and struggling creatures called humans. Now, the trees and woods talk of death. Death is nothing new, any more than climate change is new, of course. But the trees are dreaming and speaking of it for the first time. This is one way of looking at the world; another way includes straight science „ empirical notions demon-strated from deductive inquiry and evi-dence. No doubt the oak outside the window has not seen the evidence. But I have, and so have the rest of us. We have the science, now. The science tells us that mass extinctions on the planet occur from time to time. And it tells us we are now enlisted in the sixth mass extinction the world has known. This is science „ not smoke and mirrors, not a political plot. Its real. My live oak and his army dont care; its all in a life, he murmurs, sighing the message on each small breeze or shouting it in each great wind. But now what hes noticed looking through my window, apparently, is humans propelling this change and decline much more precipitously than it might naturally occur. Not only are we a life force, as we arrogantly like to think of ourselves. Now, were a death force. This is not exaggeration. For a number of years weve known that without restraining carbon emissions across the planet, just to start with, as many as one in six species could be facing extinction by the end of this century. At least one of my children and perhaps all three may be alive to see this. I dont want that. Action is required quickly, in a matter of a decade or so, rather than sl owly in a century or two, says the old tree, gazing in at me. What action, I ask? He remains silent, so far.But I can think for myself because I helped get us into this mess. So can you, and so did you. Voting would be a start, based on at least one rule: Never vote for anyone who fails to insist on reduc-ing emissions aggressively, or on join-ing a world community that demands the same thing. Thats an action, and we can take it. There are other actions. If the oak outside the window offers me anything else, Ill let you know. Q Trump’s Warsaw triumphImagine that President Donald Trump gave a speech praising a strong Europe. Imagine that he called forthrightly on Russia to stop its aggression in Ukraine and join the community of responsible nations. Imagine that he embraced the mutual defense commitment, so-called Article 5, of NATO. Imagine that he extolled the role of women in our society. Imagine that he said we share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. Imagine that he celebrated the free press and ceaseless innovation, and a spirit of inquiry and self-criticism. Thats the speech that Trump gave in Warsaw during his European trip for the G-20. It was easily the best of his presidency „ well-written and moving, soaked in Polish history and grounded in Western values. And yet it has been attacked for, as one liberal outlet put it, sounding like an alt-right manifesto.Ž The address also got a lot of praise, but the criticism was telling. Some of it was from commentators who simply cant abide Trump, but a lot of it reacted against core elements of the speech. It was unabashedly nationalist. Not in a bumptious way, but one that acknowl-edged the importance of free, sover-eign and independent nations.Ž Trump used Polands story to augment the theme. He talked of a Polish nation that is more than one thousand years old,Ž that endured despite its borders being wiped out for a century, that withstood a communist assault on its freedom, its faith and its very identity. It emphasized the importance of culture. Trump called Poland a faith-ful nation.Ž He talked of the sermon Pope John Paul II preached in Warsaw in 1979, when a crowd of a million chanted, We want God.Ž He said that large economies and fearsome weapons arent enough for our survival; we need strong families and strong values,Ž and bonds of history, culture and memory.Ž It argued that we must demonstrate civilizational self-confidence, the will to defend our values. Finally, it unapologetically invoked the West,Ž which, Trump noted, writes symphonies, rewards brilliance, values freedom and human dignity, and has created a truly great community of nations. All of this strikes the ears of Trumps progressive critics the wrong way. They believe that nations are best constrained by multinational or supranational insti-tutions like the EU. They think that all the nonmaterial things that lend our lives meaning „ God, family, national loyalty „ are atavistic, overrated or best not spoken of too much. They find the idea that the West might be beset by a crisis of confidence ridicu-lous (having apparently missed the past 10 years of European misgovernment: economic misery caused by the com-mon currency, destabilizing waves of refugees and indigenous terror attacks that have rocked France and Britain). Finally, amazingly enough, they find the West itself an offensive and exclusion-ary concept. Trump warned in his speech of fighting for centuries to maintain our free-dom, only to lose it to a lack of pride and confidence in our values.Ž The unhinged reaction to his address „ which once would have been considered clearly within the mainstream of Ameri-can thought and rhetoric „ shows how this, alas, is not an idle worry.

The muzzle goes gray, the joints get stiff, the eyes become cloudy. But senior and geriatric dogs and cats can also undergo behavior chang-es. Those changes can sometimes signal underlying physical problems or the onset of cognitive dysfunction. Anxiety, aggression and changes in housetraining habits are some of the dif-ferences you may notice. In some circum-stances, they can be surprising, scary or frustrating. The important thing to know is that they arent always a normal part of the aging process and should be checked out by your veterinarian. Here are some things you may notice as your pet gets older. Its not unusual for aging pets to become anxious about things that never seemed to bother them before. Or earlier in life, their anxiety may have been mild enough that it went unnoticed, but now it has increased in intensity. Your geriatric dog may develop a fear of thunderstorms or fireworks or start to become anxious when you leave the house. Geriatric cats can become more sensi-tive to environmental changes than they were in their younger years. A new work schedule, a child or strangers in the home, or other changes can trigger anxious reac-tions in cats such as urine spraying, loud or frequent vocalizations, excessive or compulsive grooming behaviors or loss of appetite. Changes in personality or activity level can be early signs of disease or painful conditions. A normally happy pet who suddenly becomes aggressive may be a victim of the aches and pains of old age. Osteoarthritis or disc disease can cause dogs or cats to growl, snap or scratch when touched in sensitive areas. Ear infections and dental disease can also be painful. A puppy or kitten who plays too roughly with an older animal may be on the receiv-ing end of grouchy behavior, or cause pain or anxiety in the older animal. Pets who have lost hearing or eyesight may react aggressively when they are startled by an unexpected approach. Talk to your veterinarian about whats going on. Often, the solution is as simple as medication to relieve pain or treat disease. A Fear Free-certified veterinarian, vet-erinary behaviorist, vet tech or dog trainer can help you learn to interact positively with pets who have lost hearing or sight or manage interactions between young and old pets. Loss of housetraining isnt unusual in senior pets, but its not necessarily because they have become lazy or forgetful. In some cases, they may simply need to have potty breaks more frequently to accom-modate a bladder that is weaker and less stretchy, unable to hold as much urine as in the past. Older pets become constipated, meaning they may poop smaller amounts on a more frequent basis. Diabetes or kidney disease can cause pets to urinate more often or in larger amounts. Cats with arthritis may have difficulty climbing in or out of the litter box. Help them out by making the box easier to enter and exit. These are just a few of the many reasons for behavior changes in our golden oldies. If you notice these types of changes in a pets behavior, its a good idea to sched-ule a full veterinary exam that includes a physical, as well as lab work that includes a complete blood count, a blood chemistry panel, thyroid levels, and urinalysis, and a neurological exam. You may find that your pet has a condition that can be treated or managed with medication, dietary changes, aids such as ramps, steps or compression garments, behavior modification, or changes in the pets environment or schedule. Making some simple lifestyle changes can allow you to share many more months or years of happiness in your pets company. Q Keep your veterinarian informed about behavior changes as your pet ages; they may signal health problems.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 20-26, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYruns from July 18…23 and glorifies all thing Ernest. Annual Hemingway Days events include lectures, cocktail parties, tours, races, readings and even a marlin fishing tournament (Hemingway was an avid fisherman, as devoted to the sport as he was to getting blotto). But its the Papa Look-alike Contest held at the famous Sloppy Joes bar that re-ceives the bulk of the annual festivals national press, owed no doubt to the overwhelming sight of a room packed with what appear to be Hemingways clones, all jostling for a statue shaped like „ you guessed it „ Mr. Heming-way himself. Picture it: Hemingway, clutching a bronze bust of Hemingway, smiling amidst a sea of drunk cheer-ing Hemingways. Its enough to make someone who happened to stroll in off the street think theyd been slipped a mickey (or stumbled into a particularly weird literary fetish party „ after all, nothing is off limits in Key West). Each year, more than 100 broadchested, bearded hopefuls queue up in Hemingways favorite watering hole, Sloppy Joes, to compete for the title of Papa.Ž They preen, they pose, they arm-wrestle. They spend hours choosing the right khaki safari-shirt and woolen fishermans sweater. And, much like a traditional beauty pageant, looks only get the contestants so far. Theres a talent portion, too, where each Hemingway (outfitted in a crisp outfit of white and red, complete with jaunty beret and handkerchief) runs amidst man-made bulls in a simulation of the famous, slightly more life-threat-ening event in Pamplona. The competi-tion is fierce; theres even a scholarship portion, in which the Papas celebrate their namesakes July 21 birthday by an-nouncing the recipients of the Heming-way Look-Alike Societys scholarships given to local students. Its a fun, fa-mously packed event, but its just one of many do-not-miss events scheduled for this years Hemingway Days lineup. First off, attendees may want to refresh their memories of Hemingways oeuvre by visiting his old Key West digs, now called the Hemingway Home & Museum. Located at 907 Whitehead St, the museum „ and its famously lush, six-toed cat-covered grounds „ is perfect for a lazy afternoon spent meandering through rooms filled with antiques, memorabilia and knowledge-able docents leading tours throughout. Keep an eye out for the penny encased in cement beside the pristine swim-ming pool out back. Legend has it that the authors second wife, Pauline Pfei-ffer, put it there after her husband took issue with her having overseen the conversion of his beloved boxing ring into a swimming pool, to the tune of $20,000. Supposedly, Pfeiffer was motivated by spite, not a love of aquatic aerobics; word had got-ten back to her that her husband, away from home working as a war correspondent during the Spanish Civil War, had had an affair and fallen in love with Martha Gell-horn, who would go one to replace Pfeiffer as wife number three. It was the only in-ground swimming pool on the island, and even in 1938, $20,000 was a boatload of cash. The author reportedly threw a penny on the ground when he discovered how much Pfeiffer had spent, saying she had spent all but his last penny, and that she might as well take it, too. Hemingway wrote some of his most influential work in the studio adjoining the house, including For Whom the Bell TollsŽ and The Snows of Kiliman-jaro.Ž Be aware: A number of artifacts, including a life-sized bronze statue of the writer by historical sculptor Terry Jones, have been temporarily relo-cated to the beautiful Custom House Museum, also home to an exhibit of 59 original pen-and-ink illustrations by renowned artist Guy Harvey, which follows the narrative of Hemingways novel, The Old Man and the Sea.Ž In addition to its stationary exhibits, the Custom House Museum will host sto-ried Hemingway scholar Ted Geltner, author of Blood, Bone and Marrow: A Biography of Harry Crews,Ž on July 18. Geltner will give a presentation on Hemingways influence on novelist and educator Harry Crews. And on July 20, the Custom House Museum will also host the Key West Art & Historical So-cietys Hemingway Symposium, with lectures and book signings by Heming-way aficionados Kirk Curnutt, Robert Elder and Brewster Chamberlin. Also, vital to authentically celebrating Hemingway is to honor the authors deep love of fishing, done best by com-peting in the Key West Marlin Tour-nament, which is held over three days from July 20-22. If love of the chase and the smell of the wide-open sea isnt enough to inspire you to enter, con-sider theres also $50,000 in cash prizes to be handed out to winners. Tourna-ment events include a pig-roast, fish fry, cocktail party and various oppor-tunities to brag to ones co-competitors that you beat Hemingways record of 54 marlin caught in 115 days. To celebrate Papas birthday on July 21, the Key West Poetry Guild will host a reading of Hemingways lesser-known poetic works at the Key West Library, 700 Fleming St. If youre looking for something a little more active, the authors famously sporty lifestyle might best be celebrated by participating in the Papas Pilar Rum Hemingway 5K Sunset Run and Paddleboard Race. The paddleboard race, beginning at 6 p.m. on July 22, features a three-mile ocean course that begins and finishes at the Southernmost Beach at 1405 Duval St. Or, if youre faster on pavement than waves, skip the paddle boarding and enjoy running the longest-running road race in Key West, a 5K sunset walk/run that takes participants on a tour of historic Old Town Key West, making sure to pass by the authors home. An after-party back at the beach will feature food, drinks, a silent auction, raffles and an awards ceremony. Of course, its his seminal writing for which Hemingway is most remembered and this years festival has plenty of literary events to satisfy the academically minded. Voices, Plac-es, Inspirations,Ž a series of read-ings at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 19, at the Key West Womans Club, will be performed by noted contemporary writers including Chuck Ball, author of Hemingways Heist,Ž Selena Cham-bers, Mandy Bolen Miles and Terry Schmida. Presented by the Literacy Volunteers of America Monroe Coun-ty, attendees will be able to rub elbows with the famous authors afterwards in a meet-and-greet reception on site. Those traveling by car should plan to bypass Key Wests main drag, Duval Street, on July 22, when the street will close to vehicular traffic for an all-day open-air market featuring arts, crafts, tropical clothing, jewelry and a variety of food stands. Grab a bite to eat at the market, don your Pamplona best and head over to Sloppy Joes at 1 p.m. to catch the aforementioned Running of the Bulls event. Just be sure to watch out for the horns on those man-driven bullsŽ „ and for the careening Papas, for that matter. After a couple rums each, the bulls and the Hemingways are equally unpredictable.

Among the five components that make up the index, four increased and one decreased.Survey respondents perceptions of their personal financial situation now compared with a year ago showed the greatest increase, up 6.4 points from 85.5 to 91.9. Importantly, all Floridians share these perceptions, inde-pendent of their age, gender or income,Ž said Hector H. Sandoval, director of the Economic Analysis Program at UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research.Opinions as to whether now is a good time to buy a big-ticket household item such as an appliance increased 1.7 points to 102, although readings vary across demographic groups. In particular, positive perceptions are seen among women, those under age 60 and those with an annual income of $50,000 and over, while they are negative among men, seniors and those with income under $50,000,Ž Mr. Sandoval said. Expectations of personal finances a year from now rose 3.5 points to 104.8. Overall, Floridians appear to be more optimistic. Most of the increase is due to the posi-tive perceptions of consumers current and future personal finance situation,Ž Mr. San-doval said. Views on the future of the U.S. economy were mixed: Expectations of U.S. economic conditions over the upcoming year dropped 1.8 points to 91.8; however, anticipation of U.S. economic conditions over the next five years ticked up eight-tenths of a point from 90.8 to 91.6. The labor market in Florida has continued to strengthen, adding jobs on a monthly basis. Since the beginning of 2017, the unemployment rate has declined steadily. The Florida unemployment rate in May was 4.3 percent, down two-tenths of a percent-age point from April. As of May, the num-ber of jobs added statewide over the last year came to 228,000, a 2.7 percent increase that outpaces the nations job growth rate of 1.6 percent. The positive outlook of Floridians may also be fueled by cheaper prices at the gas pump, the lowest in over a decade going into the Fourth of July travel season. Having a few extra dollars left over after each fill-up may contribute to feelings of financial well-being. Nationwide, economic activity has increased and inflation has declined on a 12-month basis. As a result, last month the Federal Reserve decided to raise the federal funds target range to between 1 percent and 1.25 percent. This change will eventually be transmitted to other interest rates, including car loans, credit cards and mortgages,Ž Mr. Sandoval said. The evolution of consumer perceptions as to whether it is a good time to buy a big household item in the following months will be an important indicator in assessing how the increased interest rates affect consumption.Ž Conducted June 1-28, the UF study reflects the responses of 479 individuals who were reached on cell phones, repre-senting a demographic cross section of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confi-dence for that year. The lowest index pos-sible is a 2, the highest is 150. Q

Tropical Breeze Fun Park in Cape Coral opened in April and claims the worlds longest mini-golf hole “I would say 50 percent of our business is done in six to eight weeks of the year.”— Chris Frizzell, general manager of Jungle Golf in Fort Myers Mini golfSEE GOLF, A15 XFlorida putt-putt courses are popular attractions as ‘clean family fun’ COURTESY PHOTO Fish Cove Adenture Golf in Port Charlottehas water views.


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 20-26, 2017 BUSINESS A15GOLFFrom page 14 „ 264 feet. To put that in perspective, its more than 50 yards farther from tee to hole than the distance on a football field from the goal line to the 50-yard line. The business model that made miniature golf a success between the world wars is likely what keeps it going in 2017, 90 years after an entrepreneur named Garnet Carter in 1927 built the first course, which was in Lookout Mountain, Tenn. What I like is what I liked 20 years ago,Ž said Bob Trimarchi, one of Tropi-cal Breezes two owners, along with David Lanaux. I know it sounds corny but its putting a smile on peoples faces. Its good, clean family fun.Ž The games health also appears strong on Floridas east coast, where other new courses have been built in recent years. The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium opened its 18-hole min-iature golf course in November. It was designed by two men with names very familiar in the world of bigger golf courses „ Jim Fazio and Gary Nicklaus. Mr. Fazio is a well-known golf course architect with his own eponymous com-pany „ Jim Fazio Golf Designs. Mr. Nicklaus is the son of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus and also played on the pro tour. Lew Crampton, the science centers president and CEO, said both men donated their services to design the course, which cost about $250,000 to build. Its not a typical miniature golf course. And not just because it doesnt have either a clowns mouth or windmill. It is set within a butte rfly garden,Ž Mr. Crampton said. And it has a science name „ the Conservation Course. Its designed to be educational as well as fun. Each hole is named for a plant or animal in the Everglades and each hole has a sign with educational information on it. Hole names include the Great Horned Owl and the American Crocodile. So, far, according to Mr. Crampton, the miniature golf course has generated $55,000 in revenue since its opening last fall. The courses purpose is two-fold for players: Have fun and teach science. Only three years before the Conservation Course opened, Lighthouse Cove opened in Jupiter. The facility has recently added new props or obsta-cles to its course as well as adding a 6,000-gallon saltwater tank. Its on-site restaurant, the Burger Shack, added an open-air pavilion with seating for 90 guests. As with many if not all Florida miniature golf courses, certain months are busier than others at Lighthouse Cove. Were very busy 10 months,Ž said Tim Glita, Lighthouses general man-ager. The only two slow months, he said, are August and September. At the peak time of the year, Mr. Glita estimates the facility averages between 500 and 600 rounds a day. In the two slow months, its down to 100-to-200 rounds a day. As a sign of the games popularity, Lighthouse opened a second location last year in Cocoa Beach. Mr. Glita said Lighthouse owners are looking at a third location. A site hasnt been selected yet. What attracted families in 1930 when Herbert Hoover was president and the Depression was just deepening its hold on America after the 1929 stock market crash is also the case now, according to miniature golf operators. Heather Bergeron, manager of Fish Cove Adventure Golf in Port Charlotte, echoed Mr. Trimarchis sentiments, ones that operators may have used nearly nine decades ago. We sell fun,Ž Ms. Bergeron told Florida Weekly in a telephone conversation. The conversation was then interrupted. Can you hold on?Ž Ms. Bergeron asked Florida Weekly. I have a customer.Ž She dealt with her customer and could be heard saying, You guys have fun.Ž Fish Cove offers two 18-hole courses, plenty of room for fun. When she returned to the phone call, Ms. Bergeron said, Thats what I always tell them.Ž Chris Frizzell, general manager of Jungle Golf in Fort Myers, believes that part of the games allure is that it demands attention. Thats attention to the challenge of making shots but also to friends and families who play togeth-er, making it a social activity instead of social media. Your phone doesnt help,Ž said Mr. Frizzell, who has been at Jungle Golf for 10 years. People actually have to talk together.Ž So much has changed since Jungle Golf opened in 1978, let alone since that 1930 Popular Science article with this headline: Why Midget Golf Swept Country.Ž Mr. Frizzell said his facility has steady growth of between 3 and 10 percent a year. Of course, now that its summer, not as many customers play miniature golf in Florida. Not surprisingly, a great bulk of the business in Florida at these courses comes when the weather isnt scorching hot and the danger of lightning strikes is not omnipresent. I would say 50 percent of our business is done in six-to-eight weeks of the year,Ž Mr. Frizzell said. That would be around Christmas and New Years and around Easter, accord-ing to the Jungle Golf general manager. Although tourists would seem to be a natural part of the clientele in minia-ture golf, Mr. Trimarchi said Tropical Breeze wasnt designed for tourists and snowbirds. We opened this for residents of Cape Coral and the Cape Coral area,Ž Mr. Tri-marchi said. Mr. Trimarchi said he has embraced the Disney approach to customer ser-vice, aiming to keep the facility spotless and treat each customer as he or she wants to be treated. The name Tropical is also enhanced, he said, by the landscaping that includes various types of palm trees that include canary date, coconut, foxtail and royal palm. The Southwest Florida miniature golf course landscape also includes a facility a short drive from Tropical Breeze Fun Parks location on Santa Barbara Boulevard. Mike Greenwells Bat-A-Ball & Family Fun Park on Pine Island Road, a Cape Coral entertainment fixture since 1992, includes a 19-hole miniature golf course. Just like with regulation golf, miniature golf courses demand attention from management. There are trees and bush-es and grass that need to be trimmed or cut, just like on the big courses. Rain and wind can damage holes over night so when workers arrive in the morning there are often new tasks to tackle. You have to think of it as a large animal,Ž Mr. Frizzell said. A horse or an elephant.Ž Horses and elephants need food and water. Miniature golf courses need attention. You have to take care of it like a living thing,Ž Mr. Frizzell said. The Florida landscape is dotted with other miniature golf courses such as Castle Golf in Fort Myers, Coral Cay in Naples, Golf Safari in Bonita Springs and Adventure Mini Golf in Lake Worth. So, 87 years after Popular Science Monthly asked the about the future of Americas newest fadŽ it doesnt appear to be going away. What did the magazine predict in 1930 of its future? Showmanship and mechanical art will decide the fate of Americas newest big industry „ miniature golf,Ž Popular Science Magazine wrote.

And he said he likely will not be able to defend next June at Concession GC in Bradenton as he plans to turn pro as soon as his college eligibility expires.

Curi-ously, Cristian swings left-handed but putts right-handed. Garrett Barber of West Palm Beach was low PBC, T-5 at even par 288. Jesse Daley of Palm Beach Gardens tied for 11th with 292, followed by Gary Nicklaus and Tyler Shook Jupiter, and R.K. Nakashian Palm Beach Gardens, all T-21 at 297. Other recent FSGA results:Scott Turner of Stuart, tournament director for Jupiters Minor League Golf Tour won the 20th annual Public Links Championship by eight strokes, posting three straight 68s at Abacoa GC Jupiter. It was his first state title. Before and after trying pro golf for 8 years through 2013, Turner won seven PBC titles, including this seasons opener, the Pricey Par-3 with Greg Forest and hosted by Nick Price at Jupiter Dunes GC He had eight wins on the MLGT, including three in a row in August 2013.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 20-26, 2017 A19 dianne GOLDENBERG CEO, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center HEALTHY LIVING Ahhh. Those lazy, hazy days of summer. The kids are running around out-side, and the smell of food sizzling on the grill drifts through the air. Summer has officially arrived. But wait … before you cool off in the water or get ready for a delicious picnic, check out these safety tips so your fun-filled season doesnt include a trip to the hospital emergency room. Keep your cool and drink lots of water to avoid heat-related illness. Dont wait until youre thirsty to drink. Heat cramps, often caused by dehydration, can progress to heat exhaustion and potentially fatal heat stroke. To protect yourself against the heat, stay indoors as much as possible, wear loose-fitting, lightweight clothes; eat well-balanced, light meals; and avoid strenuous work during extreme heat. Be water wise and teach your children to swim. At the pool, swim under lifeguard supervision and obey all rules. Stay away from water intakes, drains or filters in pools and hot tubs since long hair or clothing could become entangled. At the lake, river or beach, swim only in designated areas. Dont dive into shallow water and risk neck injuries or paralysis. If you get caught in an ocean current, swim parallel to shore and wait for the current to lessen. Remember that alcohol and water dont mix when it comes to swimming, diving and boating. Bake a cake, not your skin. Try to limit sun exposure during peak times (generally 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and apply sunscreen at least 20 to 30 minutes before you hit the beach or pool and reapply every two hours. If you do have sunburn, try taking a cool bath or show-er, applying aloe gel or other soothing lotion, or taking aspirin or ibuprofen to reduce inflammation. Redness and pain associated with sunburn may not appear immediately, but you could feel the effects of blisters and peeling skin for days. Severe reactions, which can include fever, chills, nausea or rash, may require medical attention. Have fun throwing the ball, not throwing out your back or shoulder. Before you start exercising to get in swimsuit shape, check with your doctor. Then make sure you have the right equip-ment, including properly fitting shoes. Start sl owly to av oid overuse injuries such as tendonitis and be sure to drink lots of water. Dont forget warm-up and stretching exercises. Oops … if you over-do it, first aid begins with P-R-I-C-E: Q Protect the injured area by not using it Q Rest the injured area Q Apply ice to limit swelling Q Compress the injured area Q Elevate the injured body part Pass the salad please, but hold the salmonella, shigella and E. coli. Food poisoning can ruin a good time, so watch what you eat. Cook meat, poultry, fish and shellfish thoroughly and make sure prepared salads (such as egg, tuna, potato or chicken) are not left out at room temperature for more than two hours. Dont eat raw oysters or under-cooked mussels, clams or other seafood. Wash fruits and vegetables carefully. Avoid eating raw or undercooked eggs. Common signs and symptoms of food poisoning include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and fever. Enjoy a juicy slice of watermelon, dive into a cool pool and build your best sand castle. You cant remove all the risks but by putting safety first and following a few simple steps, you can enjoy your summer and make lots of happy memories. And if an accident does happen, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Centers emer-gency room is available 24-hours a day to get you and your family back on track for summer fun. Use our InQuicker program so you have the control and convenience for 24/7 access to care. Go to our website at for more information and you can minimize your wait time.

That spring vaults the group into West Palm Beach for a July 29 show at Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre. The trio of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and David Haywood spent most of 2016 on hiatus „ a period that allowed both Ms. Scott and Mr. Kelly to make solo albums, while Mr. Haywood spent some of his time producing music for other artists. Now the reconvened group has watched its frisky R&B-ish, horn-accent-ed single, You Look Good,Ž climb into the top 10 on Billboard magazines Hot Country SongsŽ chart, while their new album, Heart Break,Ž debuted atop Billboards Top Country Albums chart. And Mr. Haywood said the group is as energized as at any point in Lady Ante-bellums 10-year career. I feel like this album and this past 18 months is really a larger story, I think, for us as a band,Ž Mr. Haywood said in a recent phone interview. This definitely isnt just another record. This is a really special moment for us in our career. For us, we knew creatively we were get-ting to the point where we were a little drained and we felt like we had kind of tapped the well of ideas. So thats when we entered into last year and said you know what, its time for us to take a breather musically.Ž A first step was choosing a producer who could bring a fresh perspective to the next album, and Lady Antebel-lum chose to team up with Busbee (the professional name for producer Michael James Ryan Busbee), who has worked with pop acts such as Pink, Shakira, Gavin DeGraw and the Backstreet Boys, as well as country stars Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean and Keith Urban.COURTESY PHOTOArtist Candice Carpentieri with her design for an Aesop’s Table.

Thats when my fathers family might convene on the farm for a weeklong visit to see my great-grandmother, my grandmother Dorothy, her husband, whom we called Grandpa Bill,Ž and my great-grandfathers sister, Goldie. Aunt Goldie lived all her life in the Ochlocknee farmhouse in which she was born. It was a conventional Southern dogtrotŽ dwelling that originally had a center hall with two rooms off either side and a kitchen in the rear. Shed start preparing for a family meal the day before, getting Rabbit the hired man to kill a chicken, then soaking the bird ov ernight in b utt ermilk before dredging it in self-rising flour and frying it up crisp. Thered be butter beans and hoecakes „ those wonderful, crispy pancakes of cornmeal „ and black-eyed peas. For dessert, thered be Goldies lighter-than-air coconut cake and, if we were lucky, homemade ice cream. Goldie had a wooden churn with a hand-crank that folks would take turns spinning until the ice cream was smooth „ the operation COLLECTORS CORNER Washington mold churns a memory of homemade ice cream scott SIMMONS Bought: West Palm Beach Antiques Festival, South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach; 941-697-7475 or Paid: $30 The Skinny: A kitchen collectible like this ice cream mold offers a glimpse into another, more formal world. Ice cream was a novelty in the 19th century, when Thomas Jefferson first served it at the White House. Think about it: There was no means of artificial refrigeration, so workers would cut blocks of ice each winter and store them in below-ground ice houses for use during the rest of the year. It was a precious commodity.As such, ice cream first was available to the wealthy, before mass production of churns and the creation of rail lines meant ice could be shipped across the country. This pewter mold, made by Eppelsheimer & Co. of New York, dates from the early 20th century. The user would have packed it with ice cream, closed it and allowed it to set up before unmolding the dessert, which could have been tinted with food coloring. We might not want to use this mold for food „ older pewter can have high lead content. But its crisp design makes it perfect as a display piece. And that, by George, is how I will use it. Q THE FIND: A George Washington ice cream mold was streamlined in the 70s with the help of an electric churn. Most often, the ice cream was vanilla. If peaches were available, Goldie would toss in a couple of bowls of the sliced fruit toward the end of the churning. She kept things simple, just scooping the confection into bowls that we promptly emptied. People of Goldies generation in other parts of the country might have done things fancier in the days before Eskimo Pies and other frozen novelties. It was not uncommon for cooks to mold ice cream into the shapes of fruit and vegetables (I have a mold in the shape of a potato) or notable personages „ George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were popular subjects. But in the end, ice cream is less about the fancy shapes and more about the sweet goodness of just desserts. Oh, and a memory or two doesnt hurt, either. I love my pewter molds, but Id trade all of them for an afternoon of good eating at Aunt Goldies. Q SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis George Washington ice cream mold stands about 3 inches high.

Certainly, homicidal rage against a corrupt world erupts and spews out over the stage and into the audience in Palm Beach Dramaworks vision of Sweeney Todd.Ž But director Clive Cholertons singular spin is that the serial throat-slitting barber does not start as a vengeance-obsessed fiend. He has guided Shane Tanner through an arc from an emo-tionally traumatized victim of injustice through the aforementioned rage and finally settling into an internally logical mechanism for coping with the abyss of an infinitely monstrous realm. That approach may be disconcerting in its unfamiliarity for lovers of the Sondheim-Wheeler masterpiece. But it adds a dimension of compassion to this oft-revived cross between gleeful Grand Guignol and merciless condemnation of socio-economic inequity. You can see Tanners Sweeney evolving from stage to stage in one of the finest performances of his local career, which takes full advantage of his acting chops as well as that sonorous baritone. With molding by musical director Manny Schvartzman, Tanners voice can roar like an uncaged beast, but his Sweeney is even more chilling when it drops in volume to intense almost caressing menace as he serenades his razors in anticipation of a congress their manufacturer never imagined. The raw material of Sweeney,Ž from Stephen Sondheims masterful score to Hugh Wheelers brilliant script, is leg-endary. But what Cholerton, Schvartz-man, their creative team and a full-throated cast have brought to it results in one of the most accomplished works in Dramaworks summer musical series and easily among the best musicals of this season anywhere. The production occasionally betrays signs of South Floridas economically dictated but sadistically short rehearsal time, especially in those group numbers that get a bit more muddled than the creators intended. But that will work itself out with a few days performance. Like the vision of original directorproducer Harold Prince, this Swee-neyŽ is firmly set in the morally murky Industrial Revolution with a bit of a ste-ampunk vibe courtesy of the costuming by Brian OKeefe. Where Sondheim and Wheeler saw SweeneyŽ as a black com-edy, Prince staged it to resonate with the darkness, oppression and anarchy of 1979 and Cholerton seems to see the same more than a quarter-century later. In todays world of mall shootings and implacable terrorists, there is an upset-ting resonance to the lyrics, Sweeney hears music that nobody hearsƒ. Per-haps today you gave a nod / To Sweeney Todd.Ž The plot is rooted in a 19th-century urban legend about British barber Ben-jamin Barker, falsely convicted by Judge Turpin, who lusted after Barkers wife. Years after being imprisoned in Austra-lia, Barker returns to London under the alias Sweeney Todd during the upheaval of the Industrial Revolution. He is told his wife took poison after being raped by the judge and that his nearly grown daughter now is in the judges clutches. The story follows his bloody revenge in which throat-sliced victims are turned into meat pies sold by Mrs. Lovett, a daft baker who has a crush on Todd. Cholertons deft skill and attention to detail is invisible to most audience members, but he invests considerable imagination in restaging works with limited resources such as last years tri-ple-cast 1776.Ž As with that production, he bookends the script with a framing device, in this case a depiction of the brutal oppression of the period. And where the John Doyle staging in 2004 also used a small cast, Cholerton makes his troupe active participants as a community of perpetual observers who hand razors and other props to whomever is performing at the moment. Schvartzman tweaked the epic-sized orchestrations to require only five musicians. The hard work succeeds, although those raised on the original cast album may find it a bit thin. But that is usually overshadowed by many of the rich powerful voices that he and Chorelton have hired and shaped such as the brassy clarion instrument wield-ed by Ruthie Stephens as Mrs. Lovett. Stephens, who played the cuckolded Charlotte in Dramaworks A Little Night MusicŽ in 2015, is a marvel of comic instincts underpinned by an abil-ity to put across this enabling murderer who long ago accepted amorally unre-strained pragmatism as the only sane tactic for surviving this cesspool of a life. While most of the cast enunciates Sondheims lyrics clearly much of the time (except when the cacophony is intentional), Stephens seems to effort-lessly roll out the tongue twisters in The Worst Pies In London.Ž She gives an extra fillip to the last word in some lyric lines such as And Im telling you them pussy cats is quick.Ž She and Tanner have as much chemistry as these disconnected characters can have as the two exercise their wit in the joyfully macabre A Little Priest.Ž Jim Ballard, often seen as a handsome leading man (albeit with a comic flair), slips easily into the venal, menacing oily but often ludicrous Beadle. Silver-throated Jennifer Molly Bell, a Dreyfoos and FSU grad, portrays the virginal songbird Johanna. She gives one of the most clearly understood renditions of the operatic Green Finch and Linnet BirdŽ as you are likely to hear. Evan Alexander Jones plays Tobias, Michael McKenzie is the tortured and torturing Turpin, Shelley Keelor has the toughest singing role as the mad Beggar Woman, Alex Mansoori is a risible Pire-lli, plus an ensemble of Victoria Lauzun, Hannah Richter, Christopher Holloway and Terry Hardcastle. The discovery here is Paul Louis Lessard, a ringer from out of town whose only local roles in his bio have been in the Maltz Jupiter Theatres La Cage aux FollesŽ and The Producers.Ž But his delivery of the innocent Anthony Hope is like a beacon in the gloom. He invests his fair-haired hero with an enviable and pitiable purity of voice and the spirit of a young man untested by the realities of life. Michael Amico once again illustrates his ability to create immersive environ-ments full of telling details. Many people love this musical so much that they have a bit of anxiety as to whether to pollute their fond memo-ries with another production. There is no need for concern here, just cause for joyful anticipation. Q „ Sweeney ToddŽ plays through Aug. 6 at Palm Beach Dramaworks, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 20-26, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYanything is that the issues confronting singles and couples today are very simi-lar to those that confronted them almost 50 years ago. Maybe the only difference is in the way we meet one another. Fifty years ago, it was in a bar. Today, its through social media or a dating app.Ž On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert (Robert John-ston) contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, the behav-ior of his married friends and several girlfriends „ played by Larry Alexan-der, Amy Miller Brennan, Clay Cart-land, Lindsey Corey, Jinon Deeb, Laura Hodos, Nicole Kinzel, Joshua Kolb, Wayne LeGette, Joshua McKinney, Mal-lory Newburgh, Erika Scotti and Leah Sessa „ colorfully illustrates the pros and cons of falling in love and taking the plunge. Ultimately, Robert is forced to come to terms with his bachelor state through a series of funny and touching vignettes. The musical features many of Sondheims best-known songs, including Another Hundred People,Ž Getting Married Today,Ž Side By Side,Ž The Ladies Who LunchŽ and the iconic Being Alive.Ž Audience members will no doubt see reflections of themselves in some of the shows intriguing characters. CompanyŽ won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Lyrics and Best Book. Mr. Lifshitz said his nascent production company chose Sondheims classic to fulfill part of its mission „ to produce challenging works that enlighten audi-ences while entertaining them. We produced the revue Side By Side By Sondheim two seasons ago,Ž he said. Our audiences seemed to really enjoy Sondheims music and Company is a show about relationships told through some of his more gorgeous songs, in my opinion. Its a timeless, thought-provok-ing story that is not dated in any way, shape or form.Ž Widely regarded as a vanguard of the so-called concept musicalŽ genre, where emphasis is placed upon style, message and thematic metaphor rather than on the plot itself, the structure of Com-panyŽ is rarely cohesive or linear. But Mr. Lifshitz said Mr. Linser brings a unique directorial talent for weaving a strong through-line into the shows episodic content. Bruce is a master at finding the threads both within the dialogue and the songs and string-ing them together in ways that most peo-ple wouldnt think of,Ž he said. Hes the only man I know who can take a musi-cal revue „ like last seasons The World Goes Round „ and make it tell a solid story. He is more than up to the chal-lenge of not taking away from the con-cept musicals nonlinear storytelling, but perhaps making it a little more cohesive for people. Hes certainly not going to take away from this musicals elegant thought process. Thats the last thing we want to do. One of the brilliant things about theatre in general and Sondheim in particular is it forces you to think.Ž Mr. Lifshitz added what he hopes audiences will take away from this produc-tion of CompanyŽ is an opportunity to personally connect with the material. I hope if you come as a couple, that you perhaps recognize the models of the couples in the show „ each of them with their own arc, their own issues and their own concerns,Ž he said. Perhaps youll relate that to something within your own relationship. Ultimately, I think Com-pany has a happy ending, even though one character ends up alone „ at least, for the time being. Whether its implied or its actual, there is a definite positiv-ity to the show. And people walk out either feeling positive about themselves or their relationships. Thats a great take-away, dont you think?Ž A July 20 preview performance of CompanyŽ will benefit two nonprofit organizations: the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation and The Pap Corps, Cham-pions for Cancer Research, which has raised more than $50 million for cancer research for the Sylvester Comprehen-sive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Other upcoming musicals from MNM Produc-tions include La Cage Aux FollesŽ (Oct. 6-22) and Little Shop of HorrorsŽ (Dec. 1-17), which also will be co-presented by the Kravis Center.

Sitting, from left are Mallory Newbrough, Nicola Kinzel, Robert Johnston and Jinon Deeb.SONDHEIM Then Mr. Haywood, Ms. Scott and Mr. Kelley scheduled two sessions „ one in Florida and the other in Los Angeles „ where they would live in the same house and write and record what became the Heart BreakŽ album. I think more than anything it was trying to get back to the way we started,Ž Mr. Haywood said of the sessions. I think with any relationship or anything, youre always trying to get back to that time and place when it was just truly organic and you truly werent thinking about anything other than just having a great time and making music together. And thats how we started in 2006. Me and Charles lived in a house together, and Hillary came over every single day, all day long. Gosh, when youre kind of living the day to day together, youre so in sync together with where everybody is and where they want to go writing-wise and creatively.Ž This time the trio was joined by eight outside writers while in Florida and then went to Los Angeles, where they wrote with Busbee and recorded with session musicians. Mr. Haywood feels the approach the group took in making Heart BreakŽ achieved the goal of bringing freshness to the project. The R&B groove of You Look Good,Ž the soulful sound of Good Time to be AliveŽ and the sing-along oh-oh-we-ohŽ vocal hook that gives This CityŽ a contemporary pop dimension are among the new twists. But there are also songs like the ballads Somebody Elses HeartŽ and Big Love In A Small TownŽ that will be like musical comfort food for fans familiar with Lady Antebellums back catalog. Theres a whole new energy,Ž he said. There was a whole new approach to this record, and I think we ended up with just a whole new excitement coming through on these songs. And You Look Good, I think, was such a great first representa-tion of that, the fun, the swagger, the horns. That excitement on that track is what weve been feeling as a band.Ž With Heart BreakŽ having become the bands fifth No. 1 album, Lady Ante-bellum has started a summer tour that has the group headlining amphitheaters across the United States into September. And Mr. Haywood says he, Ms. Scott and Mr. Kelley are eager to translate their renewed enthusiasm to the concert stage. Although Lady Antebellum got known early in its career for its ballads (I Run To You,Ž American HoneyŽ and Need You NowŽ are among the groups nine No. 1 country hits released over the course of six albums that have sold a combined 18 million units), the group has mixed more uptempo songs into both 747Ž and now Heart Break.Ž This helped the group create a set list thats suited to the outdoor amphitheaters that make up most of the bands dates. Its kind of a crazy juggling act because I feel like the more energetic and uptempo songs you have, it actually makes the ballad a more special and unique moment,Ž Mr. Haywood said. For example, there was a point in time where we really had just kind of per-centage-wise a lot of ballads. And you can only have so many big special, slow, dramatic moments in a show or you lose people. So now I think with the amount of content and songs that we have, and especially with You Look Good and the title of the record is a song called Heart Break, which is another great, fun tempo song, it really allows those ballad moments to actually be more special.Ž Q ANTEBELLUMFrom page 1 Lady Antebellum with Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young>> Where: Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansbury’s Way, West Palm Beach >> When: 6:30 p.m. July 29 >> Tickets: $17-$206 >> Info:

There is nothing more con-sistently difficult in bridge than finding the most effective opening lead, but that doesnt mean the task is altogether impossible. One can frequently deduce, either from the bidding or from ones own hand, which card will probably be the best opening shot. There may not be a feeling of 100 percent confidence in the final choice, but thats not necessary when the evidence clearly points in one direction. Consider this deal where West, after ruling out a diamond or club lead, opted for his stronger major, spades. Declarer won the trick with the king and quickly ran off eight more to score 600 points. Had West led a heart, the contract would have gone down five. East would win the first heart with the jack and shift to the queen of spades, and declarer would lose the first nine tricks instead of winning them. Of course, its easy enough „ looking at all four hands „ to see that the heart lead is best. But the fact is that the heart lead should be chosen without seeing all the hands. West can reason that on the bidding South has either the king of spades or the Q-J-x, so that a spade lead is apt to help declarer more than hurt him. Conversely „ again judging from the bidding „ a heart lead is likely to find East with one or more heart honors sit-ting behind Norths heart honors, and hence is the more attractive lead.

YesLost In ParisŽ is an effective throwback to the great physical comedies of the silent era, which makes it a welcome respite from the crass comedies so often released today. This is pure, innocent silliness with a hearty soul; its not for everyone, but for those who appreciate its craft, its an absolute delight. Fiona (Fiona Gordon) is a librarian whos never ventured far from her snowy Canadian home. One day she gets a letter from her elderly Aunt Martha (Emmanuelle Riva), a former dancer now living in Paris, asking for help because her caretakers want her to move to an assisted living facility. So Fiona goes to Paris to help. But when she gets there, she cant find Aunt Martha. Hijinks, misunderstandings and zaniness ensue, most of which involve poor Fiona and her flailing French trying to make her way around the city. She falls into the Seine, loses her luggage, her phone and part of her dignity. The only help she receives is from a homeless scamp named Dom (Dominique Abel), an opportunist who happens to have a good heart. Those versed in the art of pantomime and clowns will find much to appreciate in the perfor-mances, and those not familiar with the techniques will laugh with everyone else along the way. Watching Mr. Abel and Ms. Gor-don, who are a husband-and-wife team heretofore largely unknown in the U.S. but well respected in Europe, reminded me of the great French comedian Jacques Tati, as well as Buster Keaton and other silent comedians. They under-stand comedy is about timing, and humor is derived through context; watch what happens when the bass on the restaurant speaker is too loud, or when Fiona and Dom spring into an impromptu dance, or when they perilously climb the Eiffel Tower. These scenes rely on physical grace and timing for their effect, and all are funny. Thats not to say theres no word play at all. In one scene, Dom inexplicably gives a funeral eulogy for someone he doesnt know. Just that alone is funny. It starts inno-cently enough, but soon he gets carried away and says some outrageous things. For an 84-minute movie thats in both French (with subtitles) and English but only sparsely uses dialog, it makes the most of its spoken words. Lost In ParisŽ will likely not be a big enough hit to make Mr. Abel and Ms. Gordon, who wrote, starred in, produced and directed the film, house-hold names in the U.S., but it could get them on the right track. If nothing else, theyre a welcome throwback to whats becoming the lost art form of physical comedy.

The Price: $10.50 The Details: It was pouring the day I visited Grato for lunch. And even though it still was well over 80 degrees, I wanted something warm and soothing to eat. I started with a small bowl of minestrone, which was redolent with tomato and escarole, before moving to a Mar-gherita pizza. The pizza had a wonderfully crisp, well-done crust. Bits of fresh basil played off the slightly sweet, slightly piquant sauce, and it was topped with creamy mozzarella. Good, if not good for you, I say. It was just what this body needed on a rainy day.

Sadly, not enough beginning (or even advanced) wine enthusiasts know much about this especially delightful white varietal, which is mostly indigenous to the central Loire valley in France. To solve that problem, Kate Monroe and Thomas Monroe, founders of the Southeast Wine Collective in Oregon, set out to promote the diverse styles of Chenin Blanc being produced around the world. One cant completely appreciate (or even discuss) Chenin Blanc without taking into account what the South Africans have done with it over the past 400 or so years. Thats why I located Jim Clarke, the U.S. marketing manager for WOSA. Chenin Blanc was one of the first varietals brought to South Africa by the Dutch in 1655,Ž he said. Its the most planted wine grape in the country.Ž According to Mr. Clarke, South Africa has more plantings of Chenin Blanc than any other wine-producing region „ in fact, more than the rest of the world combined. Why, then, are so few people familiar with it? Part of the reason, of course, was the countrys political history. International trade sanctions because of apartheid pre-vented it from being exported. And for many years, the entire wine industry was under the firm control of a government agency that pretty much quashed experi-mentation, and barred new varietals from entering the country. Thats all changed. South Africa has a wide variety of microclimates,Ž said Mr. Clarke. That means it can be made in many different styles. In France, Chenin Blanc is a cool climate variety. In South Africa, the cli-mate is warmer. The acidity is lower, but the flavors are still balanced on the palate.Ž The major regions youll see on Chenin Blanc labels from South Africa include Paarl, Swartland, and Breedkloof, though other regions produce the wine as well. Most of it is exported to the UK, Ger-many and Holland, but more is finding its way to U.S. shores. Even though many prominent South African sports celebrities (mostly golfers like Ernie Els) have gone into the wine business in the country, they have mostly concentrated on the so-called internationalŽ varietals, like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. But South African Chenin Blanc sales in the U.S. are up over 35 percent in the last five years. To boost its wine trade even further, WOSA sponsors a protg program that helps disadvantaged groups train for and secure jobs in the industry. The De Bos winery offers their employees ownership positions. At DeBos, over 25 percent of the employees are part owners,Ž said Mr. Clarke. Admittedly, this is not a wine you lay down in the cellar for 20 years. But if you like Pinot Grigio and similar light and food-friendly wines, Chenin Blanc is a good choice. Plus, its made in a variety of styles, so if you sample widely (always a good idea) youre sure to find a few youll enjoy. Du Bos Sur Lie Chenin Blanc 2015 ($17) „ Sur lieŽ means on the lees,Ž which are the yeast cells that settle to the bottom of the barrel after fermentation. Aging wine on the lees adds richness and other flavor dimensions. This wine offers citrus notes on the nose and tangy fla-vors of green apple and tropical fruit. WW 89. Soms Delta Chenin Blanc 2015 ($12) „ Huge tropical fruit flavors, including banana, guava, pear and lime. Aged 95 percent in stain-less steel to preserve the crisp acidity and stone fruit character. WW 90. Kloof Street Swartland Chenin Blanc 2015 ($19) „ Lots of refreshing acidity in this wine, supporting the flavors of apples, straw and some herb. Nice mineral-tasting finish. WW 89.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: How did the tradition of clicking glasses to toastŽ begin? „ Evan L., Fort LauderdaleA: Back in the Middle Ages, it was common practice to poison the food and drink of your enemies. To show good faith, each person would pour a bit of his beverage into another persons cup, so that everyone was drinking pretty much the same thing. Over time, this process became shortened to a simple tap of one glass against the other. Q „ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Setting the Gold Standard in Orthopedic Care 3360 Burns Road € Palm Beach Gardens € Modern techniques quell fear of dentistry for patients T he fears that many people have of the dentist are a thing of the past, as advances in modern technol-ogy have allowed patients to undergo full dental makeovers or neces-sary dental work without the anxiety and discomfort they may have experienced in the past. One way to eliminate this anxiety is to seek care by a sedation dentist. However, before you choose a sedation dentist, or a relaxation dentist, there are a few questions you should ask during the initial consultation. What is sedation dentistry? There are different levels of sedation available based on your needs and the procedures you may undergo. One form of sedation is Oral Sedation which merely refers to the practice of administering oral sedatives for the purpose of patient relaxation. In most cases, the patient will be able to stay awake and respond to visual and verbal cues, but will be in a state of relaxation that will make the dental experience far more pleasant. Another form of Sedation is IV Sedation, which can only be administered by a Board Certified IV Sedation Dentist. IV Sedation can last longer and is more effec-tive in highly anxious patients and for sur-gical procedures like dental implants, or longer procedures like cosmetic dentistry or dental reconstruction. Am I a good candidate for oral sedation dentistry? Although people may be interested in oral sedation for a variety of different rea-sons, some of the best candidates for this type of procedure are those who have a slight to moderate anxiety level in relation to dentistry. If you have a fear of the dentist that has been keeping you away from receiv-ing the care you need, you may be a good candidate. Your oral sedation dentist may also be able to help you if you have a severe gag reflex, back or neck problems, difficulty getting numb with regular medication, or time constraints. Am I a good candidate for IV sedation? The majority of adults are good candi-dates for IV sedation. IV sedation is much more effective for patients who are fearful of the dentist or who simply don't want to have any memory of the procedure. IV sedation can be increased rapidly if neces-sary and can be administered for longer periods of time. Analgesics (pain reliev-ers) can also be administered through the IV line, which is not an option with oral sedation. Are there any side effects to either form of sedation? As with any medications, some individuals may experience side effects to their sedatives. Dry mouth is a common one, for example, because these oral medi-cations reduce salivary flow during the dental procedure. Most patients will simply be sleepy after the procedure and may take a restful nap. I ts a good idea to ask your sedation dentist about how the medications may affect you. Is it possible to remain fully conscious during the procedure? This will depend on the oral sedation dentist you are see-ing, and a few other factors. Some types of oral sedation may require that you are fully unconscious, but there are methods that allow the patient to be conscious during the procedure, although sedated. Be sure to ask your oral sedation dentist about these different possibilities so that you know what to expect when you go in. What experiences have you had administering sedation? When you are choosing a sedation dentist or painless dentist, you will want to ask about their background with the specific procedure that youre going in for. A sedation dentist should have passed the proper exams and have the qualifi-cations before helping his patients with sedation. You will want to feel secure in the knowledge that you are in experi-enced, professional hands.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY JULY 2017 healthy living 3 Hip resurfacing at Jupiter Medical Center: An alternative to hip replacement A ctive adults suffering from hip pain due to degenerative hip dis-ease and abnormalities such as osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, dysplasia or avascular necrosis now have an alternative to hip replacement surgery to ease their pain: hip resurfac-ing. Unlike total hip replacement, hip resurfacing resurfaces only a few cen-timeters of the bone, reducing pain and enabling individuals to return to high-demand occupations and recreational activities. During traditional hip replace-ment surgery, both the head and neck of the femur (thigh-bone) are removed and replaced with metal or plastic implants. In hip resurfacing, the head of the femur is resurfaced with a metal hip jointŽ and the remainder of the thighbone is left intact, there-fore preserving bone. Some implants used in traditional hip replacement surgery are smaller than the bone which they replace. Hip resurfacing was originally conceived as a way to more closely match the size of the head of the femur bone, while poten-tially increasing stability and decreasing opportunity for dislocation „ one of the most common complications of total hip replacement. All forms of hip replacement allow improved mobility; however, hip resur-facing more closely mimics the normal hip. After a total hip replacement, it is difficult to return to physical activities such as golf or tennis; only light activity is recommended. After hip resurfacing, patients can return to normal activities with little to no pain or stiffness. Potential benefits of hip resurfacing include: Q Bone Preservation „ With hip resurfacing, the ball and socket bones are resurfaced rather than completely replaced. Q Improved Stability „ The size of the implant may also help retain hip stability and range of movement. Q Pain Relief „ Hip resurfacing implants offer many years of pain relief for qualifying patients. Q Faster Return to Activity „ Many hip resurfacing patients resume low-impact activities safely, free from pain and stiffness. Hip resurfacing has many advantages, but is not for everyone. This procedure is intended for active patients who are under 60 years of age and in need of a hip replacement. Hip resurfacing is ideal for younger patients with strong bone quality since a total hip replace-ment only lasts between 15-20 years (possibly resulting in another replace-ment later in life). Choosing hip resur-facing first eases the conversion to a total hip replacement if needed later in life. Adults over 60 who are living an active lifestyle may also be considered for this procedure, which is determined by a review of bone quality. Patients with osteoporosis, limb shortening of more than one-half inch, severe hip deformity and prior hip surgery are not good candidates for hip resurfacing. „ Get back on your feet to get back to doing the things you love.

4 healthy living JULY 2017 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNew treatments for aortic valve stenosis PALM BEACH GARDENS MEDICAL CENTER T he heart is made up of many work-ing parts, including the left and right ventricles, inferior and superior vena cava, cardiac muscle, right and left atrium, pulmonary veins, pulmo-nary artery and the pulmonary, tricus-pid and mitral valves. Another impor-tant component is the aortic valve. The aortic valve normally has three thin leaflets called cusps. These leaflets work like a one-way gate, opening to let oxygen-rich blood flow from the lower left chamber, or ventricle, into a large blood vessel called the aorta that supplies blood to the rest of the body. As people get older, calcium gradually can build up on the cusps, resulting in stenosis or abnormal narrowing of the aortic valve. The valve also may nar-row if the person was born with a heart defect in which there are only two leaflets in the valve instead of three. Another cause of aortic valve stenosis is rheumatic fever that causes the edges of the cusps to fuse together. Symptoms and heart problems associated with aortic valve stenosis depend on the amount of narrowing in the aor-tic valve. Signs of the condition may not be apparent until there is a more than 50 percent reduction in the valve area. To make up for the increasing resistance in the va lve, muscles in the left ventricle may start to thicken to maintain the pumping function and cardiac output. This can cause chest pain, fainting, shortness of breath, fatigue, heart palpi-tations or a heart murmur. Aortic valve stenosis is frequently diagnosed during a routine physical exam when a doctor hears an abnormal heart sound. Tests to confirm the pres-ence of the condition include an elec-trocardiogram to measure the electrical impulses in the heart, chest X-ray to check the size and shape of the heart, echocardiogram to produce an image of the heart using sound waves, or cardiac catheterization if other tests have been inconclusive or to show any blockages in the heart. The Valve Clinic allows Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center to better serve the community by uniting intervention-al cardiologists and cardiovascular sur-geons to evaluate and treat structural heart disease and complex heart valve disorders through a multidisciplinary approach all in one place. The Valve Clinic sees a variety of patients including those with heart murmurs, narrowed or leaking cardi-ac valves, and patients with disorders affecting cardiac chamber structure or function. Patients may experience symptoms differently depending on severity and the type of heart valve dis-ease, but they can include: chest pain, irregular heartbeat, fatigue, dizziness, low or high blood pressure, swelling in the ankles or shortness of breath. A doc-tor s diagnosis is essential because heart valve disease may masquerade as other medical conditions. Patients who visit the Valve Clinic are seen by a variety of specialists including interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons who work together to determine the appropriate treatment through a team approach. All treatment plans are shared with each patients personal physician to ensure a smooth transition back to their care after a visit and treatment at the Valve Clinic. The patient is guided through the process by the Valve Clinic patient navigator, a nurse practitioner who helps the patient throughout the entire process. The patient navigator offers personalized care by helping to ensure patients have all necessary appoint-ments, all test results are delivered to the appropriate parties and all proce-dures are scheduled. If youve been diagnosed with heart disease, you may have been told your treatment options were limited to medication or invasive open-heart surgeries. Join Dr. Saurabh Sanon, medical director of the Structural Heart Trans-catheter Therapies program from 6 to 7 p.m. July 27 at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center for a free lecture on some of the minimally invasive treat-ment options we offer at the hospital. Q Platelet Rich Plasma aids in healing, facial rejuvenation P latelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a nonsurgical procedure for facial rejuvenation, orthopedic injuries and hair restoration, initially gained popularity from its promise as a safe and natural alternative to surgery with few contraindica-tions. PRP has been proven in count-less clinical studies to be effective in medical procedures where healing and cell regeneration are the treatment goal. How does it work? In order for PRP to be successful, platelets must be activated to suc-cessfully release their contents and begin the healing cascade and ultimate restoration of collagen.Orthopedic indicationsGolfers elbow is a condition that causes pain on the inner side of your elbow, where the tendons of your fore-arm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside (medial) part of your elbow. The pain may spread into your forearm and wrist. Golfers elbow is similar to tennis elbow, but it occurs on the inside, rather than the outside, of your elbow. And its not limited to golfers. Tennis players and others who repeatedly use their wrists or clench their fingers also can develop golfers elbow. Tennis elbow is a painful condition involving the tendons that attach to the bone on the out-side (lateral) part of the elbow. Treatment of patients with chronic tennis and golfers elbow with PRP reduced pain and significantly increases function, exceeding the effect of corticosteroid injection even after a follow-up of 2 years.Platelet Rich Plasma for facial rejuvenationInjecting PRP superficially and in the deep dermis, applications can result in skin rejuvenation and global facial volumization. Compared with other skin rejuvenation therapies, PRP has been dem-onstrated to be a useful or adjunctive therapy for tissue rejuvenation. Aesthetic Applications:€ Dark circle under the eyes€ Fine wrinkles around the eyes € Wrinkles on the forehead€ Wrinkles on the neck and chest€ Wrinkles on the lips€ Pregnancy stretch marks€ Nasolabial grooves € Acne marks€ Skin tightening on the arms and legs€ Collagen loss on the handsPlatelet Rich Plasma for hair restorationPlatelet Rich Plasma is found to significantly increase hair regrowth and decrease hair fragility and shedding. PRP for hair loss uses ones own blood (platelets) to regenerate hair growth. Introducing PRP in the scalp stimulates dormant hair follicles that has been shown to generate new hair growth and thicken existing hair. This activation is caused by the highly concentrated growth factors that are present in PRP.Post-Platelet Rich Plasma treatmentMost people will experience some mild to moderate swelling in the area of treatment, redness or heat, which are all common side effects and are part of the activation of your platelets. Because a volume of fluid has to be adminis-tered, swelling is inevitable. Bruising can occur and may take several days to disappear.How soon will I see results?Most patients will require three treatments at fourto six-week inter-vals. The first thing people notice is an improvement in skin turgor and elastic-ity. Collagen production can take up to three months to occur and the results can differ depending on the individual. Because the injected product is 100 per-cent your own, factors such as smoking, stress and illness can affect results. A series of three treatments can yield results for up to two years.

6 healthy living JULY 2017 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYStudy indicates mothers who breastfeed could reap long-term health benefits THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION B reastfeeding is not only healthy for babies, it may also reduce a mother s risk of having a heart attack or stroke later in life, according to new research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association. Previous studies have suggested that mothers get short-term health bene-fits from breastfeeding, such as weight loss and lower cholesterol, blood pres-sure and glucose levels after pregnan-cy. However, the long-term effects of breastfeeding on the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases in mothers are unclear. A new study in China found that women who breastfed their babies had about a 10 percent lower risk of developing heart disease or stroke. Researchers from the University of Oxford, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Univer-sity analyzed data from 289,573 Chinese women (average age 51) participating in the China Kadoorie Biobank study who provided detailed information about their reproductive history and other lifestyle factors. Nearly all were moth-ers and none had cardiovascular dis-ease when they enrolled in the study. After eight years of follow-up, there were 16,671 cases of coronary heart dis-ease, which includes heart attacks, and 23,983 stroke cases. Researchers observed that:Q Compared to women who had never breastfed, mothers who breastfed their babies had a 9 percent lower risk of heart disease and an 8 percent lower risk of stroke. Q Among mothers who breastfed each of their babies for two years or more, heart disease risk was 18 percent lower and stroke risk was 17 percent lower than among mothers who never breastfed. Q Each additional six months of breastfeeding per baby was associated with a 4 percent lower risk of heart dis-ease and a 3 percent lower risk of stroke. The researchers considered a range of risk factors for cardiovascular dis-ease, including smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and physical activity that could have biased results. Although we cannot establish the causal effects, the health benefits to the mother from breastfeeding may be explained by a faster reset of the mothers metabolism after pregnancy,Ž study co-author Sanne Peters, Ph.D., said. Pregnancy changes a womans metabolism dramatically as she stores fat to provide the energy necessary for her babys growth and for breastfeeding once the baby is born. Breastfeeding could eliminate the stored fat faster and more completely.Ž Ms. Sanne is a research fellow at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. The study noted that women who breastfeed might be more likely to engage in other beneficial health behav-iors that lower their risk of cardiovas-cular disease compared to women who do not breastfeed. Because this study was observational, relying on information provided by the mothers about their breastfeeding histories, it does not prove cause and effect. Results from observational stud-ies such as this one must be confirmed by a different type of study that can prove that a behavior results in an out-come. Compared to women in China, breastfeeding duration is typically shorter among women in the United States. Ninety-seven percent of the women in this study breastfed each of their babies for an average of 12 months, compared to 30 percent of U.S. mothers in 2016, according to the World Health Orga-nization. However, the U.S. Nurses Health Study found only women with a lifetime duration of breastfeeding of 2 years or more had a significantly lower risk of coronary heart disease than those who never breastfed. The findings should encourage more widespread breastfeeding for the ben-efit of the mother as well as the child,Ž said Zhengming Chen, D.Phil., senior study author and professor of epidemi-ology at the University of Oxford. The study provides support for the World Health Organizations recommendation that mothers should breastfeed their babies exclusively for their first six months of life.Ž The American Heart Association suggests breastfeeding for 12 months if possible. Q Health researchers continue to study food allergies SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNIH News in Health H ave you noticed food allergy warnings at restaurants? Maybe youve heard about peanut-free classrooms and flights. People who have serious reactions to certain foods must be careful about what they eat „ and what others eat around them. Theres no cure for food allergies. But research-ers are learning more about how to pre-vent and treat this condition.Allergic reactions happen when your immune system „ your bodys defense against germs and foreign sub-stances „ overreacts to something thats normally harmless. In the United States, most food allergies are caused by peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, eggs, milk, wheat and soy. Allergies show up most often in children. But they can develop at any age. Food allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe. Some people experience a life-threatening reaction called anaphylax-is. Symptoms may include trouble breath-ing, dizziness and fainting. When you have a food allergy, theres no way to predict how your body will react when youre exposed. You might have a mild reaction one time and a severe reaction the next. If you think that you or your child may have a food allergy, see your health care provider. Your doctor will take a detailed medical history and perform a physical examination. If a diagnosis of food allergy seems likely, they may recommend a blood test or skin prick test. These results will help determine if you or your child has a food allergy. National Institutes of Health researchers have been working to understand food allergies better. There has been a lot of research on peanut allergy because it is often severe, lifelong and has a huge impact on quality of life,Ž explains Dr. Scott Sicherer, a pedi-atric food allergy expert at Mount Sinais Icahn School of Medicine. Scientists hope the progress they make on peanut allergy will help guide how to handle other food allergies. Researchers recently carried out a large clinical trial called Learning Early About Peanut Aller-gy. The study looked at infants chances of developing an allergy if they ate peanut-containing foods at an early age. Six hun-dred and forty infants who were at high risk of developing a peanut allergy were enrolled in the trial. The infants were randomly placed in either a peanut-eating or peanut-avoiding group. They continued these diets until they were 5 years old. Infants who ate peanut-containing foods beginning early in life had an 81 percent lower chance of developing a peanut allergy. Based on the strength of these findings, an expert panel sponsored by NIH recently issued updated guidelines to help health care providers work with families to intro-duce peanut-containing foods to infants to help prevent the development of peanut allergy,Ž Dr. Sicherer says. The panel provided three guidelines that describe when and how to give these foods. The recommendations are based on how likely a baby is to develop peanut allergy. Talk with your doctor before you introduce any peanut-containing foods to your infant. The doctor may tell you when and how to start feeding peanut to your baby or recommend doing allergy testing first. Its important to understand that these guidelines are about preventing peanut allergy, not treating an existing peanut allergy,Ž Dr. Sicherer explains. The new guidelines may come as a surprise to some people. Almost 20 years ago, experts recommended that babies at high risk for developing peanut allergy avoid peanut-containing foods until age 3. But nearly 10 years ago, experts withdrew this recommendation. There was no proof that it worked. The most recent change in guidance was prompted by the very compelling results of the LEAP study,Ž says Dr. Mar-shall Plaut, a food allergy expert at NIH. The new guidelines are based on these results and the clinical knowledge of the expert panel that developed them.Ž Whether this strategy works for other food allergies isnt known. More research is needed to find out if early dietary introduction of other foods may help prevent allergy to those foods,Ž Dr. Sicherer explains. NIH scientists are also looking at ways to treat people who already have food allergies. One promising strategy is called oral immunotherapy. It involves eating small, sl owly increasing amounts of the allergy-causing food. One recent study tried this approach for peanut-allergic pre-school children. Almost 80 percent of chil-dren given the treatment could safely eat peanut-containing foods afterward. More studies are being done to improve the safety and effectiveness of the approach. The therapy is also being stud-ied for people with milk and egg allergies in small clinical trials. There may be other ways to provide this type of therapy. One ongoing study is investigating using a skin patch to deliver small amounts of peanut protein to peanut-allergic patients. Early results have shown some promise among young children with peanut allergy. Researchers will continue to assess this approach. Food allergy studies have to be done very carefully because reactions can be life threatening. Talk with your health care provider to learn more about preventing and treating food allergies. Q Food allergy symptoms Pay attention to how you feel after you eat and learn how to recognize the symptoms of a food allergy. Symptoms may include:>> Coughing>> Tingling in the mouth>> Skin reactions like hives or itching>> Nausea and vomiting>> Stomach pain>> Diarrhea If you have a potentially life-threatening reaction — trouble breathing, dizziness and fainting — seek immediate medical care by calling 911.

C8 healthy living JULY 2017 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFollowing pedestrian safety rules can prevent tragedy PALM BEACH CHILDRENS HOSPITAL A lthough summer is still in full swing, back-to-school season is quickly approaching. While most families may focus on the excitement of buying new school supplies, meeting new teachers and classmates, and pick-ing out a first day of schoolŽ outfit, this is also a critical time to make sure your child understands pedestrian safety. No matter how many precautions parents take, children can still be prone to hazards. The start of classes and the ongoing school year means children who don t take a bus or get dropped off by parents will spend more time walk-ing on and crossing various streets to get to and from school. Below are some guidelines you can teach your child in preparation for the upcoming school year.Things to rememberThe ideal situation is to always have an adult supervise your childs com-mute, but that isnt always an option. Make sure your child is aware of com-mon rules when walking on busy streets, and set a good example. When crossing the street, remember to: € Stop at the curb or edge of the road. € Make sure to look in both directions for moving cars before crossing. € Walk, dont run or dart, into the street. € Keep looking left and right until you are safely across the street. € Look for signs that a car is about to move (rear lights, exhaust smoke, sound of motor, wheels turning). € Always be alert as you walk. € Dont cross from between parked cars.Additional pedestrian safety tips for year-round activitiesWhile your child may mostly spend time on the streets walking to and from school, its important to enforce these guidelines on a daily basis. Here are some additional tips you can teach your child to help ensure a safe outing on foot: € Instruct your child to never run after a ball or toy that has crossed the street. € Children should always walk on the sidewalk. If there are no sidewalks, they should walk facing traffic. € Refrain from using a cell phone while crossing the street. € Observe all traffic signs.€ Never allow your child to play in the street. € Have your child wear reflective clothing when playing outside after dark.

Colds contribute to more than 18 billion upper respiratory infec-tions worldwide each year. Researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, identified the mutation in a young child with a history of severe HRV infections. The case, published online June 12 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, reveals an important mechanism by which the immune system responds to these viruses. Several weeks after birth, the child began experiencing life-threatening respiratory infections, including colds, influenza and bacterial pneumonia. Because her physicians suspected she might have a primary immune deficien-cy „ a genetic abnormality affecting her immune system „ they performed a genetic analysis. The analysis revealed that she had a mutation in the IFIH1 gene that caused her body to make dysfunctional MDA5 proteins in cells in her respiratory tract. Previously, scientists had found that laboratory mice lacking functional MDA5 could not detect genetic mate-rial from several viruses, making them unable to launch appropriate immune responses against them. Similarly, the NIH researchers found that mutant MDA5 in the girls respiratory tissues could not recognize HRVs, preventing her immune system from producing protective signaling proteins called interferons. HRV thus replicated unchecked in the girls respiratory tract, caus-ing severe illness. These observations led the research-ers to conclude that function-al MDA5 is critical to protect-ing people against HRV. With intensive care, the child survived numerous bouts of severe illness, and her health improved as her immune system matured and formed protective antibod-ies against various infectious agents. The human immune response to common cold viruses is poorly understood,Ž Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIAID, said. By investigating this unique case, our research-ers not only helped this child but also helped answer some important scientific questions about these ubiquitous infec-tions that affect nearly every-one.Ž To explore whether other people experience poor health related to the IFIH1 gene, researchers analyzed a database of more than 60,000 volunteers genomes. While rare, the team found multiple variations in IFIH1 that could lead to less effective MDA5. Interest-ingly, most people with these variations lived normal lifespans and had healthy children, leading researchers to suspect that other genetic factors may have compensated for the abnormality, or that people experienced frequent HRV infections but did not report them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates the average healthy adult has two to three colds per year, but the range var-ies widely based on lifestyle and environment. For most people, infection with HRVs leads to minor illness that does not require medical attention, but the viruses can cause serious complications in people with severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmo-nary disease and other health problems. Because no antivi-ral therapies exist for HRVs, these patients „ like the child in the study „ receive sup-portive care and are advised to take steps to avoid expo-sure. Insights from this study may lead to new strategies for treating patients with severe HRV complications and inad-equate MDA5 responses. When people have other disease factors, HRV infection can become a tipping point and lead to severe illness, disability or even death,Ž said NIAIDs Dr. Helen Su, senior author on the report. Now that we better understand the pathway, we can investigate more targeted ways to intervene.Ž NIAID conducts and supports research „ at NIH, throughout the United States and worldwide „ to study the causes of infectious and immune-mediated diseases, and to develop better means of pre-venting, diagnosing and treating these illnesses.

Perhaps it time to have a careŽ-versation! Communication is key in a careŽversation. The first step to take with senior loved ones should be to let them know you understand aging brings on new challenges, and that you want to be involved but are not trying to take con-trol away from them. Make it clear you are putting safety first, since the risks of falls, car accidents, missed medication doses, etc., can be dangerous. Be sure they realize that accepting some assis-tance to maintain their quality of life is not a sign of weakness. Second, try to remember that most seniors will vehemently disagree with you about what they really need, as opposed to what you think they do. Try to get to the bottom of why the indi-vidual or other family members might not be accepting the reality of a medi-cal condition or declining health status. Are your parents, spouse, or siblings denying the truth even though medi-cal tests are conclusive, consultants or neutral third parties have conducted assessments? Consider that perhaps medical conditions like Alzheimer s or Parkinsons and their impact on health, wellness, or daily activities, may not be fully understood.

In the case of a sibling or other relation, it might be that they do not want to be asked to help with caregiving activities or want to take responsibility for any part of a loved ones daily routine. To prepare an action plan that works, expectations about how much help and support par-ents can expect from the family should be discussed „ and adult children and family members must be encouraged to be honest and realistic about how much assistance they can provide. Third, put your personal frustrations aside. Be a good listener, and attempt to address individual concerns. Sar-casm, anger, and bullying have no place in the care-versation, and will only make everyone more resistant. Be as unemotional as possible when discussing options, and emphasize the fact that any transition will take time and patience, necessary changes will not happen overnight. Dont argue about, or try to control every detail, instead concentrate on the important items like safety, wellness, and finances. Your loved one is frightened „ you need to reassure them you will protect their independence, the respect and dignity they deserve will not be taken away, but their safety is of the utmost importance. Help them understand their limitations while inviting their trust. Dont present changes as permanent, instead consider saying, ƒlets try this for a while and see how it works out.Ž Last, but not least, do not make it harder by waiting till the last minute to have the careŽ-versation. You do not want a medical emergency to force dif-ficult decisions to be made under stress-ful circumstances. In the end, no parent or spouse wants to be a burden to their family. Get them involved in making the decisions, so that they feel empowered and that they have the support of family members. Seniors can continue to enjoy their golden years even though they may need assistance at home! If the indi-viduals safety is threatened, and they are extremely resistant to home care, a professional experienced in geriat-rics, elderly behavior and senior home care, could be a good option to bring in for consultation. Often a neutral third party can help build a consensus within the family by addressing anxieties in a nonthreatening, comforting manner, overcoming the objections to assistance, and tackling fear of change and loss of independence. Remember commu-nication between all parties is key. The services of a home health agency can be an important piece of the puzzle neces-sary for your parents or spouse to age well, safely and comfortably in their own home. „ Visiting Angels of the Palm Beaches has a refreshing and award winning approach to homecare relationships. Let our AngelsŽ help you or a loved one recover from illness, accident or surgery, or assist with the care and companion-ship needed to remain comfortably and safely at home while aging in place, or dealing with the daily demands of living with Alzheimers and Parkinsons.

10 healthy living JULY 2017 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYPatch — with no needles — could be your next flu shot A n influenza vaccine can pro-duce robust immune responses and be administered safely with an experimental patch of dissolving microneedles, a National Institutes of Health-funded study led by a team at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University has shown. The method is an alternative to needle-and-syringe immunization; with fur-ther development, it could eliminate the discomfort of an injection as well as the inconvenience and expense of visiting a flu clinic. This bandage-strip sized patch of painless and dissolvable needles can transform how we get vaccinated,Ž said Roderic I. Pettigrew, director of the National Institute of Biomedical Imag-ing and Bioengineering, which funded the study. A particularly attractive feature is that this vaccination patch could be delivered in the mail and self-administered. In addition, this technol-ogy holds promise for delivering other vaccines in the future.Ž The researchers received funding through an NIBIB Quantum Grant and from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The study was led by Nadine Rouphael, M.D., associate professor of medi-cine and Mark J. Mulligan, M.D., Emory University School of Medicine, in col-laboration with Mark R. Prausnitz, Ph.D., Regents Professor and J. Erskine Love Chair in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Georgia Institute of Tech-nology. The vaccine patch consists of 100 solid, water-soluble needles that are just long enough to penetrate the skin. The skin is an immune surveillance organ,Ž Mr. Prausnitz said. I ts our interface with the outside world, so its very well equipped to detect a pathogen and mount an immune response against it.Ž Adhesive helps the patch grip the skin during the administration of the vaccine, which is encapsulated in the needles and is released as the needle tips disso lve, within minutes. The patch is peeled away and discarded like a used bandage strip. The researchers enrolled 100 adult participants, dividing them into four random groups: vaccination with microneedle patch given by a health care provider; vaccination with microneedle patch self-administered by the study participant; vaccination with intramus-cular injection given by a health-care provider; and placebo microneedle patch given by a health care provider. The researchers used an inactivated influenza vaccine formulated for the 2014-15 flu season to inoculate partici-pants other than those in the placebo group. The researchers found that vaccination with the microneedle patches was safe, with no serious related adverse events reported. Some participants developed local skin reactions to the patches, described as faint redness and mild itching that lasted two to three days. The results also showed that antibody responses generated by the vaccine, as measured through analysis of blood samples, were similar in the groups vac-cinated using patches and those receiv-ing intramuscular injection, and these immune responses were still present after six months. More than 70 percent of patch recipients reported they would prefer patch vaccination over injection or intranasal vaccination for future vac-cinations. No significant difference was seen between the doses of vaccine delivered by the health care workers and the vol-unteers who self-administered the patch-es, showing that participants were able to correctly self-administer the patch. After vaccination, imaging of the used patches found that the microneedles had dissolved in the skin, suggesting that the used patches could be safely discard-ed as non-sharps waste. The vaccines remained potent in the patches without refrigeration for at least one year. The prospective vaccine technology could offer economic and manufactur-ing advantages. The manufacturing cost for the patch is expected to be com-petitive with prefilled syringe costs. The patch, however, can dramatically reduce the cost of vaccination, since self-administration can eliminate the need to have health workers oversee the process. It can be easily packaged for transportation, requires no refrig-eration, and is stable. Mr. Prausnitz is co-founder of a company that is licensing the microneedle patch technology. He is an inventor on licensed patents and has owner-ship interest in companies develop-ing microneedle products, including Micron Biomedical. These potential conflicts of interest have been disclosed and are overseen by Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University. The team plans to conduct further clinical trials to pursue the technologys ultimate availability to patients. They also are working to develop micronee-dle patches for use with other vaccines, including measles, rubella and polio. Q Keeping your gut in check: healthy ways to stay on tract SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNIH News in Health Y our 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 con-stipation, 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 fre-quent 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 peo-ple who have early life stress are more likely to develop IBS. However, this increased risk for IBS went down when people con-fided in someone they trust about the stress they experienced,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 constipa-tion. 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 discom-fort. 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 condi-tions such as allergy, asthma and rheuma-toid 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 probiotics 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 processed 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
