A2 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYI shot the sheriff Everyone remembers when candidate Donald Trump boasted he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his sup-porters would shrug and vote for him anyway. It was a claim to arrogance few would dare. As it turned out, he was right. That conceit followed him into the White House. He has since put his brag to the test on multiple occasions. So far, there is little evidence his aberrant behaviors have imperiled his popularity among his hardcore supporters. Can-didate Trump, by his faux supposition of homicide, already imagined he was above the rule of law. Six months into his administration, he imagines he is the law. I thought about this when his speech at the Boy Scouts Jamboree last month went viral. He spoke campaign-style. His audience was a crowd of 40,000 young boys on the cusp of puberty and the threshold of becoming adults. He treated the occasion as if it were a political rally and his audience were old enough to vote. It was jarring to see how easily the uncorrupt spirit of thousands of adolescent boys could be sullied by Trump, in full view of their Scout mentors, protectors and parents. It happened in the blink of an eye, if only temporarily. But donÂt blame the Scouts. It is Trump who deserves the credit. He is a master manipulator. What hap-pened that afternoon was the induction of young people into the Trump doctri-naire. The moment deserves a place in the political Hall of Shame. The presi-dent proved yet again he can target the unsuspecting in a crowd, take aim, pull the rhetorical trigger and kill innocence without any expectation he will be pun-ished for his crime. It happens again and again. The visceral cheers erupt right on cue from the dark and hidden place surviving in the lizard brains of people you wouldnÂt think would succumb. But they do. The president smiles, walks away, satisfied with the damage done and he is no worse for the wear. After six months in office and firing away indiscriminately, his approval ratings among Republicans still stand at about 80 percent. Trump knows this and gloats in the power of his supportersÂ unconditional love. It enables him free rein and to act without accountability for his moral transgressions. He is always on the prowl for new converts to the dark side, even among Boy Scouts. The presidentÂs tactic is to go after the least common denominator in his audience. And there always is one. He has unerring accuracy on judging his mark. His ammo is a provocateurÂs tease. The man blows smoke better than a sideshow barker. Everyone wants to go into the tent and see the boneless baby. Adolescents are vulnerable to seduction by bad boys and bad-boy behavior. Which is why so many adults devote themselves to Scouting. Their mission is to mold, mentor and prepare young boys for the rigors of leadership and the challenges of adulthood. Scouting is aspi-rational toward Âa more conscientious, responsible and productive society.ÂŽ It doesnÂt include merit badges for mastering the art of bullying or met-aphorically shooting someone just because you can. ThatÂs TrumpÂs stan-dard for meritorious conduct. He role modeled at the Jamboree what many perceived as egregiously un-Scout-like behaviors. Afterward, Boy Scouts of AmericaÂs chief executive, Michael Surbaugh, apol-ogized to Scouting families Âoffended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the Jamboree. It was never our intent.ÂŽ But good intentions donÂt count with this president. In the weeks before the ScoutsÂ controversy, the president went gunning for Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In May, he took aim, first firing FBI Director James Comey, because of the ÂRussian thing,ÂŽ i.e., the FBI investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Because Sessions acted as a campaign surrogate for candidate Trump, he recused himself from the investiga-tion. The president went bonkers. It wasnÂt that he thought Sessions had no choice. He thought Sessions had made the wrong choice. In his view, the rule of law that no one is above the law does not apply to him. He is the law. There is a constitutional crisis lurking behind that assertion. But know Robert Mueller, the Justice Department Special Counsel investigating the ÂRus-sian thingÂŽ is in the presidentÂs cross-hairs, too. The president has an ÂI shot the sheriffÂŽ ambition. It is sending cold chills down AmericaÂs spine. The month of July was capped off by the remarks the president made before a gathering of police officers. He casu-ally suggested police should Ânot be too niceÂŽ to their suspects. He said giving suspects ÂroughÂŽ treatment was OK by him. The cops applauded and laughed at the presidentÂs dark exhortation. But no one else laughed who understands police brutality is not a joke Â„ most especially not the officers who put their lives on the line every day and who work hard to do the right thing, accord-ing to the rule of law. It is the way jus-tice is supposed to work in America. Q Â„ Lilly writes frequently on issues of politics, public policy and philanthropy.

Instead, mine was made by International Harvester in 1959. It ha d six cylinders too, upward of 150,000 miles on the odometer, and somewhere in the vicinity of 120 horsepower, giving it a capacity for speed that produced a blazing 61 mph if you had a slightly downward slope and a few days to get there. Running it above 50 even on a gentle incline was almost impossible. This was 1972 in Douglas County, Kansas, where the rolling hills of the eastern prairie vaguely resemble the Lake Wales ridge country in Central Florida. My girlfriend, Eva, had decided to go into natural living with me. So we bought the truck for $200 from an old farmer. Then we found another old farmer who would let us garden in his rambling cor-rals, plotting out 120 feet by 50 inch soil enriched from decades of cow manure. We grew potatoes, onions, carrots, toma-toes, corn, pole beans, peas, spinach, let-tuce, squash, peppers and a few water-melons Â„ the whole shebang. That farmer, Burt Wilson, was a Cherokee Indian adopted about 1905 from a Kansas orphanage by the postmaster of Lawrence, whose name happened to be Roger Williams. ThatÂs all it took.The coincidence of names got us a carte blanche opportunity to work one of the tidiest farms in eastern Kansas, neatly tucked into 450 acres of Wakarusa River bottomland. We grew hundreds of pounds of produce, never anticipating either the size of the harvests or the hard work it would take while we were going to college about 10 miles to the north, in Lawrence. Our friends, though, appreciated the food. So did we. And we loved those soft summer evenings in the fields: The cacophonous cricket symphonies per-formed spontaneously from stands of black oaks. The air above the valley floor settling sweet with the whispered prom-ise of dayÂs-end cool. Fireflies sparking above the garden and across the road into the trees, while dusk slipped away west into night and Colorado. We never considered that all of it, for us, depended on that old pickup. And we never considered that the old pickup depended on roads built for its use; on the full-service gas stations that pocked the American countryside then; on oil wells stretched back from Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and the Americas into North Africa; on ships that transported the oil, on ports where it was offloaded and moved out, on the refineries that pre-pared the oil, and finally on the railroads, highways and transports that carried gas-oline to the service stations. All of which created an elaborate system of economics Â„ of international dependencies Â„ neither of us would ever have been able to explain. We were a little too proud of ourselves in those days for living simply and (as we viewed it) self-sufficiently. In truth, we werenÂt. The truck had a covered back so you could either sleep in it or haul tools and vegetables without getting wet, both of which we did. In addition, it got as much as 18 or 20 miles per gallon when gasoline was running 31 cents or so at the pumps. ThatÂs important. Volkswagens produced in the late 1950s and Â60s could get up to 50 miles per gallon, sometimes, but they were almost the only foreign-made cars you saw on the road. American-made cars and trucks did a nice unapologetic eight, 10 or 12 mpg, for the most part. Unbeknownst to Eva and me (we thought we were rugged individualists), weÂd embarked on typical 20th century American lives. Our century, the 20th, was distinguished not just by world wars and social change, but by the sounds of internal combustion engines and the sight of pole-strung wires connecting every town and almost every home in the Unit-ed States and western Europe. We used resources (in this case fossil fuels) like there was no tomorrow. So did everybody else we knew. That fact to me Â„ that reality Â„ suggests the ultimate dependency, one far exceeding the dependencies of a mere international economy. Why? Because weÂre still doing it now and now all of us know what weÂre doing. Now, weÂve become a conscious and willing part of a rising tsunami of resource exploitation by humans. Our human tsunami is distinct from the EarthÂs cycles of change in geology, geography, weather and biology that have unfolded since the planet was created four billion years ago. But this tsunami doesnÂt exist in a vacuum, by itself. In fact, itÂs an accelerant. So the more we drive, or the less we drive electric or gas-saving vehicles, the more we have to accept blame for the horrific consequences our children will inherit. What can we do? The answer is, a little each day. And thatÂs not hard. Plan to drive a little less: Make one shopping trip instead of two or three in a week. Buy locally produced foods that donÂt have to be shipped great dis-tances, requiring heavy participation in the tsunami. And plan to vote. Vote for the candidates who take the tsunami seriously and look for ways to hobble it, to slow it, to break it up and inhibit it. One other thing, too: recycle, like my cousin, Mike. I no longer have my old IH pickup. But Mike still has and operates the Dodge Power Wagon, now 60 years old this fall. He drives it just a little each day. Or week, or two. Q The Â‘anti-diversity screedÂ’ that wasnÂ’t The first thing to know about the instantly infamous Âanti-diversity screedÂŽ written by a Google software engineer is that it isnÂt anti-diversity or a screed. The loaded description, widely used in the press and on social media, is symptomatic of the pearl-clutching over the memo, which questions the premises and effectiveness of GoogleÂs diversity policies. The document was meant Â„ before getting splashed on the internet Â„ as an internal conversation-starter. The author posits that innate differences between the sexes may account for the disparity between men and women in the male-dominated world of high-tech. He states repeatedly that he believes in diversity, and thereÂs no reason to doubt his self-description as a classi-cal liberal. His exclamation-point-free memo is hardly a rant. He expresses the hope that Âopen and honest discussion with those who disagree can highlight our blind spots and help us grow.ÂŽ How naive. The witless and inflamed reaction to his document instead under-lines his point about Âa politically cor-rect monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence.ÂŽ It is one thing to disagree with the memo; it is another thing to believe the views therein should be forbidden. For-mer Google engineer Yonatan Zunger says that if it were up to him, the author would be summarily fired and escorted from the building immediately by secu-rity (you canÂt take a chance with such a danger). Entrepreneur Elissa Shevinsky believes that the memo could run afoul of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act Â„ i.e., it might be illegal. GoogleÂs diversity officer, Danielle Brown, didnÂt quite go that far. She offered a pro forma assurance that dif-ferent views are welcome at Google. Nevertheless, she stipulated the opinions of the author are ÂincorrectÂŽ and added, ominously, that any discussion needs to be in accord with Âour Code of Conduct, policies, and anti-discrimination laws.ÂŽ Her case would have been much stronger if she had reb utted an y of the authorÂs statements about sex differ-ences Â„ assuming that she could. Sex differences are value-neutral. As the publication Stanford Medicine notes: ÂWomen excel in several measures of verbal ability Â„ pretty much all of them, except for verbal analogies.ÂŽ On the other hand, men Âhave superior visuospatial skills.ÂŽ Which is better? It depends on whoÂs asking, and why. Women tend to be better with people, men with things. Is either of those supe-rior? Women tend to put more emphasis on family, men on their status. Does that speak better of women or men? As the Google author cautions, ÂMany of these differences are small and thereÂs significant overlap between men and women, so you canÂt say anything about an individual given these population level distributions.ÂŽ In light of these differences, though, it is foolhardy to expect 50/50 gender par-ity in professional life, and otherworldly to believe such differences donÂt have a role in the predominance of men in, say, software engineering. Obviously, the field should be open to women, and Neanderthal behavior in the workplace should be stamped out. But a company that believes implicit bias accounts for gender imbalances must be allergic to certain inconvenient facts. The Google author raised them, and paid the price.

Watson. Da Capo Press. 304 pages. Hardcover, $28. Lynn University Professor Robert P. Watson makes reading history a totally engaging experience. He does so by choosing unusual and challenging top-ics, setting them into contexts rich in detail and present-ing them in a prose style that is clear, vivid and unclut-tered by academic jargon. Mr. Watson makes historical events shine as if they were todayÂs news. His latest book is a piece of fine storytelling. Readers will care about what happened on HMS Jersey, the major British prison ship during the American Revolution. As he must, the author attaches his relatively narrow topic to a few larger concentric circles: prison ships in gen-eral; overcrowded British prisons in the colonies and insufficient buildings to repurpose; and the overall Revolution-ary War. The bookÂs spatial focus is New York, particularly Brooklyn water-ways, and New England. The chapters are enticingly compact and action-filled, each opening with a quotation from Philip FreneauÂs 1781 poem, ÂThe British Prison-Ship.ÂŽ Even though itÂs not about the HMS Jersey, the poem still gives a powerful con-temporary insight into the horrors of prison ships. The early chapters provide a detailed overview of the dismal situation for the colonial rebels in the early period of the war. Even under the estimable General Washington, retreat often was the order of the day. Overwhelmed by the much larger British fleet and its professional sailors, colonial forces, even when supplemented by privateers, were not making much headway. The hows and whys of the turnabout become clear as the narrative proceeds, but once the focus is on the prison situation and the bright idea of prison boats, Mr. WatsonÂs voluminous research on this generally unknown element takes over. The Jersey is at once the most extreme example of prisoner conditions and the iconic one. ItÂs hard to imagine that over several years 11,500 prisoners died on that ship alone (around a dozen every day by 1783) Â„ more than on all the others put together. Simply put, conditions went from abominable to worse. Food to sustain the incarcerated population was not sufficient and was most often dangerous to consume. You could die without it or die from eating it. Fresh water was a rare commodity. Sanitary conditions? There werenÂt any. Medical treatment? Uh-uh. People were crushed together in their disintegrating garments. Disease was rampant. No sympathy was shown to the prisoners, and they were not granted the protec-tions of the laws of war. Though this book allows readers to meet a great many prominent historical characters, many of the lesser known or totally obscure individuals are just as interesting. Among these are the five young men whose recorded expe-riences as Jersey prisoners allow the author to bring the conditions and cruelties of the Jersey fully to life. Each of the five lived to write about his war experiences, and especially their ordeal on the prison ship. Mr. WatsonÂs judicious selections of the menÂs own words and his summaries of other pas-sages in their writings enliven his study enormously. Astonishingly, several of these young men were barely men at all. At least two of the five had just entered their early teens when they went off to war as patriot-adventurers. Not long after the war ended, the few viable prison ships were turned to other purposes, while the worst of the wrecks were either scavenged or sim-ply abandoned. The latter was the fate of the Jersey, with the hundreds and thousands of corpses on and around the ship reduced to piles of bones that were eventually recovered. Their final disposition became a matter of political controversy and indecision for decades. This sobering book reminds us that no one can overestimate the human capacity for cruelty or underestimate the capacity for perseverance and courage. About the author Robert P. Watson, Ph.D., has published more than three dozen non-fiction books, two encyclopedia sets, three novels and hundreds of scholarly journal articles, book chapters and ref-erence essays on topics in politics and history.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationYou love your old cat, but heÂs not as active as he used to be. ItÂs wonderful to cuddle with him on the sofa, but you miss his antics as a youngster. WouldnÂt it be great to get a kitten so you could enjoy those good times again and still relish the pleasure of your aging catÂs company? Not so fast. ItÂs easy to think that a young pet and an old one will get along and that the young one will even rejuve-nate a senior, but sometimes expectations and reality clash. Senior cats faced with a rambunctious kitten may be grumpy or even aggressive, and youngsters can become fearful or learn bad habits when their overtures are forcefully rejected. HereÂs what to know to help ensure a happy, respectful relationship. First, think twice before getting a kitten at all. Introducing a young cat to senior cat household can be a bigger problem for cats than introducing a young dog to a senior dog household, says Mar-sha Reich, DVM, a veterinary behavior specialist who lectured at the American Veterinary Medical Association confer-ence in Indianapolis last month. ThatÂs because cats in general donÂt welcome the addition of other cats to their envi-ronment. A senior cat who doesnÂt want to interact with a kitten may begin by simply walking away, but that doesnÂt always work. ÂSome young cats want to play with the senior cat no matter what,ÂŽ Dr. Reich says. ÂThese are the Âme, me, meÂ kitties. In some cases, the younger cat stalks the senior cat with what seems like play but is really aggression, ending with the senior cat aggressively defending him-self from the younger one or fleeing the younger one and being chased. If the senior cat doesnÂt think itÂs play, itÂs not play.ÂŽ This can lead the older cat to engage in more active behaviors to avoid inter-action. Hissing, growling, swatting and chasing are all signs that a cat has had enough of anotherÂs behavior. It can be difficult (and sometimes painful) to interrupt and redirect a cat who is behaving aggressively. With cats, managing the environment is often the best way to reduce conflict. Give the younger cat something to entertain him, such as interactive toys or a bird feeder that he can watch from a window. Spend more time playing with him so he has less time and desire to annoy your old cat. When you canÂt be there to supervise, keep the cats separated. If your older cat is sedentary, confine him to a comfort-able room with everything he needs: food, water, a litter box and a comfy place to nap. Place resources such as food and water bowls and litter boxes in separate areas. Neither cat should be able to guard those items and prevent the other from using them. Sometimes owners are surprised that thereÂs a problem because the cats seemed to get along at first, Dr. Reich says. Often, thatÂs because the kitten was recovering from a respiratory infection or some other kittenhood illness so his behavior was muted until he was feeling better. Finally, consider whether your senior cat is grouchy because heÂs in pain. Degenerative joint disease is seen in 90 percent of cats older than 12 years. Other conditions that may cause pain include lower urinary tract infections, dental disease, kidney disease and endo-crine disorders such as diabetes. Loss of vision and hearing can also contribute to spats between cats because the older one doesnÂt see or hear cues from the young-er pet. Take your cat in for a checkup to rule out potential health problems and get them treated if necessary. Your vet-erinarian has more options for managing pain in cats than in the past.

An organization that provides veterans with the opportunity to learn golf as a form of therapy that also enhances their assimilation back into civilian life has received a $40,000 boost from an event at the Lost Tree Club in North Palm Beach. The group is called PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) and this year more than 200 veterans will go through a six-week golf instruction pro-gram administered by the South Florida PGA Foundation and local PGA profes-sionals. The program at Lost Tree opened with the presentation of colors by the Palm Beach Gardens High School Junior ROTC On the course were two veterans who have participated in previ-ous PGA HOPE efforts. They provided each contestant with a special challenge coin and shared their stories about how the program has changed their lives. ÂThis was such an amazing day and I am humbled to have the opportunity to go through the PGA HOPE program,ÂŽ said one veteran, who asked to remain anonymous. ÂIt has gotten me through some very hard times over the past year and I am extremely grateful.ÂŽ Partners supporting the SFPGA initiative included Delta G Ventures Raymond James Jupiter Medical Center RoccoÂs Tacos JetSmarter TitoÂs and Titleist .More SFPGA: Teams from Medalist GC Hobe Sound, and Ocean Reef Club Key Largo, were the winners on separate Hobe Sound courses in the seventh annual Charity Pro-Am which raised more than $30,000 for the South Florida PGA Foundation Medalist, led by Cary Sciorra won at McArthur GC Michael Leone paced Ocean Reef to the top at nearby Loblolly Pine GC Habitat for Humanity is among charities supported by the SFPGA Founda-tion.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYso that when they graduate, they have a greater opportunity of living on their own and finding jobs,ÂŽ said Marlene Sotelo, director of programs and operations for The Els for Autism Foundation, the non-profit owner of the Palm Beach County public charter school. The vocational labs replicate four workplace settings Â„ a computer-repair store, a restaurant, a retailer and a supermarket. Students will learn how to fix PCs, set tables, hang clothes and stock shelves, among other tasks. Functional academics in math, reading and writing will enable students to count change, follow a recipe and fill out an application. A Sensory Arts Garden and Pavilion will debut Sept. 25, serving as a fifth vocational lab for training in the horticultural arts. ÂThe reason we need a center such as ours is because we need specialized instruction for these kids to become inde-pendent and productive,ÂŽ Ms. Sotelo said. The Learning Academy students, ages 14 and older, join the 3to 13-year-olds at The Learning Center, which opened in 2015. Enrollment at the sprawling, 26-acre campus is 250. A total of 130 teachers and therapists certified in exceptional educa-tion, who either have completed or are working toward completing their autism endorsement, aim to carry out the mission of founders Ernie and Liezl Els. ÂWhen youÂre on a campus where everyone is an expert in the field, there is a high probability of the students being successful in life,ÂŽ Ms. Sotelo said. Mr. Els, a PGA Tour golfer and Jupiter resident, established the foundation in 2009 with his wife, Liezl, shortly after their son, Ben, was diagnosed. Their goal is to give other autistic children locally, nation-ally and globally the resources and tools they need to prosper. ÂEveryone wants to have a productive life, and everyone wants to be a produc-tive citizen,ÂŽ Ms. Sotelo said. ÂTo think that someone with autism wants to sit around and play with their iPad all day, they will if you let them, but given the right environ-ment with the right support, they can be successful.ÂŽ The centerÂs inaugural Global Impact Conference in April drove home that mes-sage during a two-day event that featured eight keynote speakers from Canada to California to Cape Town. Titled ÂThe State of the Science,ÂŽ it offered perspectives on the fundamentals of autism, the challenges of diagnoses and the importance of treat-ment studies to caregivers, educators and especially parents. ÂAt the end of the day, itÂs the family thatÂs going to be the game-changer,ÂŽ Ms. Sotelo said. ÂThat was a real big point that was made by several of the speakers.ÂŽ Marvin Shanken, chairman of the foundation, proposed the idea for a conference after seeing the success of the lower school and the impact it has had on improving young lives. ÂWhat weÂve created is important to us, but long-term, building an awareness as a leading center for autism takes ingenuity, so I thought, ÂA conference,ÂÂŽ Mr. Shanken said. ÂWhat a great way to begin the pro-cess of creating a reputation.ÂŽ The foundation plans to have a second conference next year and also is in Âseri-ous discussionsÂŽ to partner with a yet-to-be-named organization to pursue research in the field, he said. ÂWe have so much more to accomplish,ÂŽ Mr. Shanken said. ÂItÂs self-evident that weÂre very proud.ÂŽ The final phase of the capital campaign includes an aquatic center and an athletic track, a cafeteria and a gymnasium and a place to house adult services. ÂItÂs really more than a dream Â„ itÂs a fantasy,ÂŽ Mr. Shanken said. ÂWhen I walk down the halls and see these kids, it makes me melt. Through lots of persistence and generosity, we were able to build this cen-ter to help them.ÂŽ Ben, 14, transitioned to the upper school this year. ÂHe has his buddies, and some of them will be moving to the upper school with him, so heÂs excited to return and see his friends,ÂŽ Mr. Els said. ÂWhile it will be an adjustment, we know heÂll flourish as much as he did at the lower school.ÂŽ One out of 68 children in the United States has autism, more than AIDS, diabe-tes and pediatric cancer combined, accord-ing to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The strain and stress of a diagnosis can hit a family hard. ÂFor a long time, you are trying to figure out, ÂWhat just happened to my life?ÂÂŽ Mr. Els said. ÂYou feel sorry for yourself and for your kid and for your family. But soon enough, you learn to embrace the awesome qualities of your child and his friends. ÂOne of the misconceptions about people with autism is that they are not affec-tionate and donÂt really have a sense of humor,ÂŽ he continued. ÂOur Ben loves hugs and is one of the funniest people we know.ÂŽ While the South Africa native nicknamed ÂThe Big EasyÂŽ values his familyÂs privacy, he realizes his presence in the public eye gives him the ability to raise funds that further the cause of preventing Â„ and possibly curing Â„ autism. ÂIt is something that we both feel very passionate about,ÂŽ Mr. Els said. ÂOur dream is to continue the groundbreaking work that we started two years ago. Every day at the center, we celebrate the amazing contributions of children and adults with autism, and we want to share their success with the rest of the world.ÂŽ Q SCHOOLFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSThe front of The Els Center of Excellence.COURTESY PHOTOSErnie Els tees up for the Els for Autism Pro Am at Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens.

Priced at $56,495, it repre-sents a midpoint Â„ about $12K less can purchase a base C-Class coupe, and $12K more will provide the ultimate turbo V8 versions. And while compromise isnÂt always the best answer, in this case, bal-ance is the greatest virtue. AMG is the performance arm of Mercedes, and to have its name on the car means some added aggression in the appearance. But the C-Class coupe is already a nice design with plenty of sleek sports car lines and flared fenders. The AMG treatment here is about subtle intimidation by altering the front and rear fascias as well as blacking out the side trim. The Â43ÂŽ line of cars has been re-introduced as a new beginning step in the AMG hierarchy. While these cars do get treated to a more assertive appearance, they miss out on some of the signature elements the ultimate high-performance Mercedes cars receive. For example, the hotter AMG C63 gets a broader make-over with more new body panels, but it also loses the snazzy starry-night style grille that only comes on the C300 and our C43. So the full upgrade is not always desirable. But as debatable as exterior styling can be, buying a Mercedes Â„ at any price level Â„ comes with the expectation of a premium interior. The C43 is no excep-tion. This car nicely mixes a sporty and luxurious nature with a wraparound inte-rior. The high center tunnel is the perfect height for a driver to rest the right elbow while gripping the flat-bottom sports steering wheel. Buying the tweener also means getting a few options as standard. The C43 already receives the first rung of the C-Class three-tier premium packaging level. It includes a premium audio sys-tem, rear view camera, keyless entry/ignition, and blind spot monitoring. And the panoramic sunroof is always a nifty feature to show off. Plus, it receives the power adjusting memory seats. The MB-Tex with Dinami-ca inserts are not real leather and suede, but it takes looking at the window sticker to realize this. Also, adding to the pre-mium presentation is the standard AMG interior that goes for a performance vibe by contrasting the black materials with red seat belts and red stitching on every surface. But the real upgrade to justify the price is under the hood. The 3.0-liter bi-turbo motor produces 362 horsepower Â„ rated squarely in-between the V6 and V8 of the Lexus RC series. This motor barks to life with a nice performance growl at startup, but settles into a nice everyday pattern for the city streets. The coupe feels luxurious, confident and solid, just like a normal C-Class Once there is an open stretch of road, the AMG animal takes over again. With a quick prod to the accelerator, thereÂs an instant bark from the exhaust and a solid hit of power. The turbos work-ing in sequence (one for each bank of the V6) have no lag and the utility of the nine-speed automatic transmission keeps them in the optimal RPM range. Life begins to move in the fast-forward kind of sequence felt when an engine is even more eager than the driver to release the full power. The C43Âs standard all-wheel drive means that while this has seat-pinning power, thereÂs also a constant underlying feeling of control Â„ even when speed approaches triple-digits. And a car that adapts to be confident no matter if itÂs 30 mph or 100 mph shows a true investment in engineering. ItÂs hard to say the C63 wouldnÂt be able to achieve the same all-around com-posure with its 469 hp 4.0-liter bi-turbo. But that car starts at $68K and has a hotter 503 hp S version for $76K. Those price points open up a much wider world of performance coupes and hardtop con-vertibles.Instead, the C43 cracks the seal of the high-performance AMG without breaking the bank. The price isnÂt cheap; it doesnÂt feel cheap; and it might just be the best way for your enthusiastÂs heart and practi-cal brain to find a compromise. Q myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

She always looked up to her mother, a nurse and even chose to be a nurse when it came to picking Halloween costumes as a child.She not only became a nurse, but rose to become a chief nursing officer. But she went way beyond that position. Today, Mrs. Goldenberg is the new chief executive officer at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, where she is responsible for hospital operations, executive planning and medical services of the 199-bed acute care hospital. She began working there in June. While she enjoyed her work as a nurse, eventually, she wanted more. What propelled her to go up the ladder, she said, was Âto have the ability to help more people.ÂŽ ÂAs a nurse and chief nursing officer, I saw the opportunity to have a broader influence on healthcare, not only within the hospital, but within the community, within the system,ÂŽ she said. ÂI never dreamed IÂd be a CEO when I went into nursing, but itÂs something that evolved over time. Fortu-nately, I have been able to serve a variety of people and communities and patients and work with great physicians and clinicians.ÂŽHer career as a healthcare executive spans more than 35 years and she has been in a CEO role for more than 10 years. Most recently, she was the CEO of a hospital in Miami-Dade County with a Level II trauma center. Among other CEO positions, she was the CEO of one of the former Tenet hospitals in Broward County. Her focus has been on new program development and growth. ÂI have a lot of experience, but I always want to be open to learning new ways of doing things,ÂŽ she said. ÂI want to always keep an open mind and stay young at heart.ÂŽ Mrs. Goldenberg said she enjoys bringing new technology, services and care models to the hospital. ÂThat helps us take better care of patients and the community,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe recently brought in a new 256-slice CT scanner. While expensive, that tech-nology is game changing for patients and the hospitalÂs ability to diagnose and treat. The first of its kind in northern Palm Beach County, this advanced imag-ing technology offers faster, more effi-cient exams, low dosage and detailed, high-quality images. ÂIn our structural heart program, we offer very complex procedures to care for patients with different problems with their heart,ÂŽ she said. ÂIf we bring in a new cutting edge piece of equip-ment, the physician and the team can use that to provide better o utcomes.ÂŽ And providing better incomes is key, she said.

MONEY & INVESTING Car rental company stock prices crushed by app-driven services, high debtProbably the greatest aspect of financial markets Â„ and the most frustrating from an investorÂs perspective Â„ is that they are efficient. When a company is doing well, its stock goes higher. When it is struggling, its stock price immedi-ately reflects that. This is problematic for investors because they want to buy great companies at a low price and sell their struggling investments at a higher price. So why would an investor buy a stock when it looks like everything that could go wrong has gone wrong and the future looks even worse? This is the dilemma facing potential investors in the publicly trading car rental companies in the U.S. What headwinds is this sector facing and should investors add these stocks to their portfolios? The first problem facing the car rental companies is that more and more of their business is being taken away by companies like Uber and Lyft. Custom-ers flying into a city are choosing not to take the time to take a shuttle to a rental counter, fill out stacks of paperwork and then choose a car. Instead, they are enjoying the convenience of tapping on their phone and being on their way as soon as they pick up their bags. This has depressed revenues and the demand for rental cars across the country. The second related problem is the size of their fleet of cars. Because the companies did not anticipate the drop in car demand, many of the largest corpora-tions ordered a record number of new vehicles over the past few years. At first, these companies tried selling the excess vehicles to Âright sizeÂŽ their inventory. But so many cars being sold at the same time depressed the value of these vehicles. The corporations had a hard choice. Either sell the cars at steep losses or lower prices to drive demand for the cars. Many attempted a mix of both of these solutions, which cut revenue and profitability. Despite these thorny problems for car rental companies, their biggest potential problem is in the future. Autonomous cars will be hitting the roads and will be commonplace in the next decade. Will anyone need a rental car if he can just hire an inexpensive robotic taxi to take him wherever he needs to go? Will people even ÂdriveÂŽ cars in 30 years, or will we all be chauffeured everywhere by our cars? Companies like Hertz and Avis are being crushed in the markets. Hertz trad-ed at over $450 a share in 2014 and now is under $40. Frankly, it surprises me that it trades even this high. Hertz has lost money for three straight quarters and the bloodletting shows no signs of abating. But there is always hope. Some analysts believe the companies will manage self-driving fleets for the companies that produce self-driving cars like Apple or Google. But that would mean a complete transformation of a very old school busi-ness model. And these corporations will have to do this while servicing massive amounts of high yield debt taken on to fund mas-sive fleets of underutilized cars. DoesnÂt sound like a successful winning formula to me.

A18 WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY Jupiter engineer creates bottle warmer for families on the go They say necessity is the mother of invention. That was certainly the case when Eric and Elyse Schwartz brought twins into the world. The Jupi-ter residents Â„ he holds the title of lead manager for inno-vation at FPL Â„ are a couple on the go, and sought the most efficient solutions to caring for their twins. Mr. Schwartz thought exist-ing bottle warmers lacked efficiency, so the engineer took on an innovation project of his own. After almost five years of trial and error, Mr. Schwartz created the patented Liquid LittleWunz Bottle Warmer featuring an efficient heat transfer system.His invention came just in the nick of time, too, as the Schwartz family has expanded with the arrival of a baby boy. Mr. Schwartz intends to create additional products for parents who lead active lifestyles.Liquid LittleWunz uses straps to firmly tighten around any sized bottle. When a metal disc is pressed, a liquid solution travels through the bottle, heat-ing it faster and warmer than older methods. It is reusable by boiling it in water. ÂOur twin boys are now 5 years old and we have a new infant.ÂŽ Mr. Schwartz said, ÂThis warmer allows us the free-dom to enjoy life and the outdoors.ÂŽ The LittleWunz baby bottle warmer is priced at $19.99, comparable to other warmers that sell for $14 to $19. It is available through www.LittleWunz.com or through Amazon. Questions can be emailed to email@example.com. Q MEDICALFrom page 14Schwartz things,ÂŽ Mrs. Goldenberg said. ÂThey look for schools and they look for healthcare. WeÂre a big draw to where people want to live, and I love being a great community partner.ÂŽMarsha Powers, CEO of TenetÂs Eastern Region, Coastal Division, said, ÂDianne is a strong leader and her extensive knowl-edge of hospital operations will be very valuable in this new position.ÂŽ A longtime Lake Worth resident, Mrs. Goldenberg said she doesnÂt miss the long daily drive to Aventura Hospital & Medical Center for her previous job. It only takes her 19 minutes to get to work now. She is married to Dr. Jim Goldenberg, a neurologist. They have four children, one grandchild and four granddogs. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is an acute care hospital serving the medical and healthcare needs of Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast for more than 45 years. The hospital was the first in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast to perform open-heart surgery and has since remained one of the areaÂs leading heart hospitals, having performed more than 16,000 open-heart surgeries and more than 100,000 cardiac catheterizations to date. Name: Dianne Goldenberg Where I grew up: Ironton, Ohio Where I live now: Lake Worth Education: B.S. in nursing from Texas WomenÂs University. I obtained my masterÂs in nursing from Barry Uni-versity, before earning my MBA from Nova Southeastern University. What brought me to Florida: Sunshine and a great job opportunity. My first job and what it taught me: My first job as a registered nurse taught me to be caring, responsible and compassionate. A career highlight: I feel honored that I have been able to work with physi-cians, nurses and clinicians to improve care in South Florida. I truly believe the best has yet to come. Hobbies: I love to travel the globe with my husband, be with my family, work out, cook family dinners and baby-sit my grandson. What was the spark or seminal moment that made me decide on my chosen field: I am not sure it was a spark but more of an evolution. I wanted to expand my role in order to have a broader impact on caring for others. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Pursue the highest level of education possible, take every opportunity to say yes to projects and opportunities, and build and value relationships with others. About mentors: I have had the good fortune of working with a number of great mentors in my career. Key lessons are: always keep the patient and quality the priority; build strong relationships; and a good plan executed well is better than a great plan not executed. Q

Zubin Mehta and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Riccardo Muti. Those are giants in the world of classical music and to have both of them here in the same season is really quite special.ÂŽ Mr. Bell said he and his programming colleagues responded directly to audience requests for Âmore Broadway, more com-edy, more music superstars Â„ from Bach to rock.ÂŽ And theyÂll get it all, starting with the 10th anniversary Kravis on Broadway series featuring ÂThe King and I,ÂŽ ÂThe Book of Mormon,ÂŽ ÂFinding Neverland,ÂŽ ÂCabaret,ÂŽ ÂThe Illusionists,ÂŽ ÂThe Body-guardÂŽ and ÂSomething Rotten.ÂŽ ÂWe have a Broadway theme that runs through all of our events, save the Regional Arts Series,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou see it in our Rinker Playhouse, where ÂLittle Shop of HorrorsÂ will play, and youÂll see it in regu-lar Dreyfoos Concert Hall presentations in addition to Kravis on Broadway, such as ÂChicagoÂ and ÂA Chorus Line.Â We have a Lunch & Learn program that includes a panel discussion with major Broadway investors and producers. And our gala for the year is called ÂA Broadway Celebration,Â focusing on celebrity performers.ÂŽ In addition, Provocative Entertainment At Kravis, or PEAK, will resume its series of innovative presentations in November, concentrating on ethnic diversity and impactful, contemporary themes Â„ this time with a nod to Broadway as well. ÂPEAK is one of the most incredible things we do,ÂŽ Mr. Bell said. ÂThere is a play called ÂThe Mountaintop,Â which ran on Broadway a few years back. So thereÂs actually Broadway in the PEAK series, which, by the way, weÂre expanding from 11 to 16 productions next year. Among those are Lemon Andersen and his solo show ÂWhen Aliens Fall From The SkyÂ and ÂDakhaBrakha,Â which is incredible music from Ukraine, Â10 Hairy Legs,Â which celebrates the artistry of the male dancer, the dance troupe Urban Bush Women, the ener-getic Yamato Â„ The Drummers of Japan and Ranky Tanky, a music group from the islands of South Carolina and Georgia, focusing on that Sea Island sound.ÂŽ Mr. Bell said Argentinian dance company Che Malambo and Lil Buck and Jon Boogz, who are remarkable dancers and choreographers, will fill out the bill, along with ÂIt Gets Better,ÂŽ a project that uses media to convey messages of hope and support to LGBT youth. ÂPEAK is just a wonderful variety of work that touches on different areas of our community,ÂŽ he said. ÂDefinitely worth seeing.ÂŽ Aside from Broadway and classical music offerings, the Kravis will aim its spotlight on pop and jazz music perform-ers such as The Beach Boys and Chris Botti, Audra McDonald and Wynton Marsalis, even Paul Anka, George Benson, Dudu Fisher and Johnny Mathis, all of whom are returning this season. The cal-endar also will include comedy raconteurs John Cleese, Howie Mandel, Jackie Mason, Dennis Miller and the duo of Brad Garrett and Rita Rudner. ÂAlso weÂll have Michael Feinstein, whose musical series incorporates Cole Porter and the First Ladies of Song Â„ Judy Garland, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald,ÂŽ Mr. Bell said. ÂSo you see, there truly is something for everyone.ÂŽ The process of putting together a season like this Â„ which also includes a diz-zying array of lectures, films, childrenÂs theatre and cabaret performances Â„ is time consuming, he added. It can start as far out as two to four years from when the events finally come to the Kravis venues of Dreyfoos Hall, the Rinker Playhouse and Persson Hall. But thatÂs what it takes to amass the diverse assemblage of talent that performs there. ÂWeÂve got so much and it all depends on what you want and what you like,ÂŽ Mr. Bell said. ÂBroadway, popular and classical music, great singers, dancers, comedians. WeÂve got the best of everything. Whatev-er it is you love, you Âll find it here. Look at our schedule, check out our brochure, visit our website. IÂm sure youÂll find something youÂll want to see.ÂŽ Q Â„ The Kravis Center is at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach.

Instead of cheering for her child from backstage, sheÂs the one performing and her son, Sean, 9, might be found watching from the wings. ÂHe often tags along with me,ÂŽ Ms. Keelor said by phone from her home in Jupiter. ÂBut I donÂt take as many out-of-town performances anymore because I want him to have a life thatÂs as nor-mal as possible and to not miss out on anything.ÂŽ ThatÂs good for Sean and for local music fans, because it means theyÂll get to see Ms. Keelor per-form at Palm Beach DramaworksÂ Don and Ann Brown Theatre in West Palm Beach Aug. 18-20. Ms. Keelor is the third artist to appear in the theaterÂs Cabaret Con-cert Series, which launched in June. The classically trained singer traveled extensively in her 20s, performing as a vocal soloist accompanied by an orches-tra, and she still supports herself as a cabaret or concert singer, even though her performances in local musical the-ater have been the source of frequent accolades. Most recently, she won rave reviews for her role as the sad, tragic Beggar Woman in Palm Beach DramaworksÂ production of Stephen SondheimÂs ÂSweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.ÂŽ She also played Margaret White, the psychotic, hyper-religious mother to a telekinetic teenage daugh-ter in the creepy ÂCarrie The Musical.ÂŽ Both roles are challenging, both characters barely in touch with reality. ÂI donÂt like the dark roles, but I do like that these characters are very complex and have some of the hardest singing tracks. I find the layers of the characters interesting and I think I can relate to the maternal side.ÂŽ Going from such an intense, demanding dramatic role to singing beloved selections from the Great American Songbook isnÂt as different as you might think, Ms. Keelor says. ItÂs all about storytelling. ÂItÂs different in preparation. ItÂs like learning 15 to 20 characters, actually.

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY LATEST FILMSÂ‘Logan LuckyÂ’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesSteven Soderbergh has directed many types of films with great success (he won an Oscar for ÂTrafficÂŽ in 2000), but itÂs clear he has an affinity for heist movies (he made ÂOceans 11ÂŽ and its two lesser sequels). Yet itÂs still odd to see him on the big screen with ÂLogan Lucky,ÂŽ about a robbery during a NASCAR race. I say this for a number of reasons. For one, you might recall Mr. Soderbergh announced his retirement from feature film directing in 2013. This didnÂt last (few thought it would), but it is true that this is his first feature since then (heÂs been quite busy with ÂThe KnickÂŽ on Cinemax). When he Âretired,ÂŽ Mr. Soderbergh said he was burned out and disliked the ways directors were being robbed of their cre-ativity in feature films. Everything became about money rather than making the best movie possible. ItÂs ironic, then, that heÂd return to features with a movie that has clear main-stream appeal; this is certainly not one of his indie film passion projects (ÂBubble,ÂŽ ÂThe Girlfriend ExperimentÂŽ) that he knows will not play to the masses. ÂLogan LuckyÂŽ follows Jimmy (Channing Tatum), Mellie (Riley Keough) and Clyde (Adam Driver), the three Logan siblings, as they plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the busiest race of the year. They need help, so they enlist demolitions expert Joe Bang (Daniel Craig, delighting with a Southern twang), who then brings in his dim-witted broth-ers Sam (Brian Gleeson) and Fish (Jack Quaid), who has ÂDangerusÂŽ tattooed on his right shoulder. In the ÂOceansÂŽ movies the intelligence of career criminals Danny (George Cloo-ney), Rusty (Brad Pitt), et al. was never in doubt. We could believe they were clever enough to think through robberies on an incredibly complex scale, and part of the fun was in the revelation of what they saw coming that the audience couldnÂt pos-sibly foresee. This is relevant in terms of ÂLogan LuckyÂŽ because none of the characters Â„ especially mastermind Jimmy Â„ shows anything close to the intelligence needed to execute a heist this complicated. Maybe on his absolute best day Joe Bang could pull it off, but even that feels like a stretch, especially given that heÂs incarcerated when we first meet him. That said, itÂs nonetheless fun to watch the plan unfold. On top of that, ample cameos (Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Dwight Yoakam and more) keep things fun, and darn if the aftermath doesnÂt make you smile. YouÂll likely sense some biting social commentary in the last act, which is Mr. SoderberghÂs indirect way of criticizing the establishment without being preachy. As often, well done, sir. In its totality, ÂLogan LuckyÂŽ delivers as advertised. ItÂs compelling, features like-able albeit flawed characters and offers some good twists along the way. It might have a few too many characters, but its humor (especially an argument between prison inmates and the warden that will delight ÂGame of ThronesÂŽ fans) and creativity outweigh the flaws. WeÂre glad youÂre back, Mr. Soderbergh. FILM CAPSULESThe Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature + (Voices of Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Jackie Chan) When a greedy mayor (Bobby Moynihan) wants to build an amusement park, squirrels Surly (Mr. Arnett) and Andie (Ms. Heigl) and the rest of the animals try to stop the destruction of their home.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 17-23, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B13 PUZZLES MT SET HOROSCOPESLEO (July 23 to August 22) A colleague might try to goad you into say-ing or doing the wrong thing. ItÂs best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your sup-porters stand with you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although itÂs not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youÂre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you donÂt charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but itÂs your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) YouÂll find that people are happy to help you deal with some dif-ficult situations. And, of course, know-ing you, youÂll be happy to return those favors anytime. WonÂt you? PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the well being of your ailing relationship. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportunities for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But donÂt rush into making decisions until youÂve checked for possible hid-den problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on profes-sional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: DonÂt rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, itÂs best to keep your tongue and tem-per in check for now. The full story hasnÂt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person Â„ even if itÂs said in jest Â„ could delay or even derail your progress. BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy. But youÂre also a won-derful host who can throw a really great party.

Her maiden name was Grace Gebbie. She married Theodore Wiederseim in 1900, and they divorced in 1911 Â„ the s ame year she married William Drayton. She divorced Drayton in 1923, but kept his name. She illustrated childrenÂs books, ads, magazine covers, comics like ÂDolly DingleÂŽ or ÂDolly Drake,ÂŽ and later music boxes, limit-ed-edition plates, valentines and paper dolls. The best-known art of her career are the ÂCampbell Kids.ÂŽ She drew the pictures for the ads for many years. The googly-eyed children were used for doorstops, valentines and other projects. Q: Could my silver clown pin with enamel decoration really be made by Tif-fany & Co.? That is what it says on the back, and I saw a similar pin in an auction ad recently. A: Yes. Tiffany & Co. made a series of pins as part of the Gene Moore Circus group about 1990. The juggling clown with polka-dot pants recently sold for $976 at a New York auction. They have come down in price since 2000. Q: What is the corner block on a chair? I took a dining-room chair to have the slip seat to re-upholstered, and they said two corner blocks were missing. A: Most dining-room chairs made in the late 19th century and later have corner blocks holding the seat in place. The blocks are used inside the seat frame to keep the four sides of the seat in position. Pieces of wood cut to fit into the corners of the seat or a single narrow piece of wood posi-tioned between two adjoining sides of the seat act as braces. Each is attached with a screw or glue. Twentieth-century chairs often had a sheet of plywood covering the bottom. Earlier chairs used mortise and tenon construction. Q: How old are glass telephone insulators? Which came first, glass or pottery? I just started collecting insulators because I found a pile of them buried near a pole on a farm. A: Glass insulators were first made in the U.S. in the 1840s to be used with the new telegraph lines. They were what collectors call Âbureau knobÂŽ insulators because they look like the wooden drawer pulls. Most had no inside threads. They lit-erally insulated the lines, especially in the rain. Threaded insulators were patented about 1865 to 1875. The last glass insula-tors were made in the 1970s by Kerr Glass Manufacturing Corp., the company that makes Kerr canning jars. Pottery insula-tors were made from the 1850s. Porcelain became popular about 1915. Some early insulators were made of gutta-percha, rub-ber, wood or composite, but glass was the most popular. If you plan to collect them, you should know that the embossing on the insulator identifies the shape, maker and other things. There is a collectorÂs code for shape. ÂCDÂŽ stands for Consolidated Design. And each shape has a number added to the letters. The system was start-ed in the 1950s. New numbers are added by a selected expert. Porcelain numbers that start with ÂUÂŽ are unipart insulators, while ÂMÂŽ numbers are for multi-part insulators. To learn more, join the National Insulator Association, go to the shows and look up history online. Q: I bought a poster of dogs playing poker about 30 years ago and would like to know if it has any value. It shows seven dogs sitting around a table playing poker. One dog is passing a card under the table to the dog next to him. There are no names on the poster. Is it worth anything? A: The picture on your poster is called ÂA Friend in Need,ÂŽ part of a series of six-teen anthropomorphic dog paintings by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge (1844-1934) and published by Brown & Bigelow, a company in St. Paul, Minn. They were commissioned for a 1903 advertising campaign for cigars. Nine of the paintings pictured dogs in a poker game, and collectors often call the paintings ÂDogs Playing Poker.ÂŽ The paint-ings were reproduced on posters, prints, calendars and other items. This painting of the two dogs cheating at poker is the most popular in the series. An original painting would sell for a lot of money, but prints are common and can sell for $10 or less. A pair of the paintings sold at auction for over $590,000 a few years ago. Tip: Do not mount old maps, prints, etc., on cardboard. The acid in the card-board causes stains. Use an all-rag board. An art store can help. Q Â„ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. Write to Kovels, Florida Weekly, King Features Syndicate, 628 Virginia Dr., Orlando, FL 32803.

You know you can go there for lunch, breakfast or dinner, order a satisfying meal and either linger over a meal or eat and run Â„ theyÂll accommodate either. I love the sandwiches and the salads.But I always come back to the flatbreads, which offer a crispy crust topped with an array of ingredients Â„ the Medi-terranean, with artichokes, grilled veg-gies and goat cheese, is a favorite. For this flatbread, Hurricane Caf tops the crust with pieces of roast chicken, slices of red onion, bits of bacon, a tangy barbecue sauce, mozzarella and a sprin-kling of cilantro. The bacon lends a smoky flavor that permeates the dish and the cheese tames the tanginess of the sauce. Share it as an appetizer or do as I do, and eat the whole thing yourself.

Â„ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEWhatÂ’s in your wine? The question often arises: Is wine simply the result of crushing grapes and letting the juice ferment, or is anything added to wine to improve quality or cover up flaws? The answer is mostly yes. At least for lower-end products. As IÂve mentioned many times, there is no consumer product in the world that gives you less information about whatÂs in the package than a wine label. But some winemakers steadfastly maintain a Ânon-interventionistÂŽ approach, adding nothing or very little to the wine, and they actually list ingredients on the bottle. This, how-ever, is extremely rare. On the other hand, makers of very inex-pensive wines, like the stuff that comes in three-liter boxes with a little plastic faucet on the side, have a lot at stake because they make wine in industrial quantities. Since theyÂre cooking the stuff up 300,000 gallons at a time they have to (a) save money, (b) assure uniformity and (c) make sure nothing goes wrong in the process. These producers use several techniques (and several substances) to maximize produc-tion and minimize risk. First, thereÂs sugar. If thereÂs not enough residual sugar in the juice, the yeast wonÂt be able to convert it into sufficient alcohol. Winemakers add beet or cane sugar (a process called chaptalization) to increase alcohol content. It doesnÂt make the wine sweeter, because itÂs consumed during fermentation. This is illegal in most countries, but a common practice in Germany and some other places. Then, thereÂs oak, which adds all sorts of flavors and dimensions to wine. If you canÂt afford barrels, which cost upward of $1,500 each, you throw planks of oak into the juice. If you canÂt afford them, you use oak chips. And if youÂre really on a budget, you use oak sawdust, then filter it. Next are vitamins, which keep yeast alive in the juice during fermentation. These may be added in high-alcohol wines (over about 14 percent). Acid content (pH) is extremely important to overall taste and balance. Too little acid might call for the addition of tartaric, malic, or citric acid. These are very com-mon ingredients in many of the foods we eat, and are not at all harmful. Tannins occur naturally in grape skins and seeds and are the critical structural component of red wine. If thereÂs not enough, powdered tannin can be used to add muscle to an otherwise weak wine. Now itÂs time to talk about Rubired grapes. As the name implies, theyÂre really, really red and are used to make a concentrate called Mega Purple. This can be added to red wines to boost the color and make the wine look consistent from batch to batch. In California, in 2013, over 255,000 tons of these grapes were harvested. Winemakers wonÂt admit on the record to using it, but the word is that even makers of more expensive wines drop some in to deepen the color. Since itÂs basically grape juice, itÂs not consid-ered an additive. There are other processes that donÂt involve putting substances in wine, but are also used to improve quality. Microoxygenation blows tiny air bubbles into the juice to open up and smooth out tan-nins. Reverse osmo-sis forces the liquid through a membrane to filter out impurities and increase flavor concentration. All that being said, thereÂs no reason to fear opening your favorite bottle. These substances donÂt remain in the wine Â„ theyÂre used in minuscule amounts to eliminate flaws, and then completely removed. So keep swirling and sipping, and sample this weekÂs favorites. Dierberg Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley 2013 ($32) Â„ If you like your Chardonnay on the oaky side, this is the bottle for you. Pronounced yet nicely balanced aromas of oak and vanilla with a buttery mouthfeel and characteristic mixed fruit flavors. The oak is done with a gentle touch. WW 87-88. Locations I4 Italian Red Blend NV ($19) Â„ This is one of the very interesting blends from Dave Phinney, whom IÂve written about in this space previ-ously. Lots of leather and perfumey lavender on the nose, and blackberry and plum flavors. Could use decanting to calm down the tannins. WW 87. Locations P4 Portuguese Red Blend NV ($14) Â„ Another Dave Phinney effort, this wine is pretty purple in the glass with pronounced vanilla aro-mas.

2 healthy living AUGUST 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Dental implants simplified with state-of-the-art surgery D ental implant restorations are replacement teeth comprised of several components: an implant post made of biocompatible titani-um that is anchored to the jawbone, an implant abutment that attaches to the implant and protrudes from the gum line, and a custom-made res-toration (often a crown or bridge) that is fitted onto the abutment for a natural appear-ance. Dental implants can be used to replace a single failing or missing tooth as well as multiple failing or missing teeth. In many cases, Dr. Jay Ajmo can replace all of a patientÂs teeth with dental implants. Who is a candidate for dental implants? Most adults at any age who want to replace missing teeth are candidates. They are used to permanently replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth and have become the optimum choice for many patients requiring tooth replacement and den-tal restoration. Implants also serve as secure attachments for removable den-tal prostheses such as full dentures or partial plates. What does a complete dental implant procedure involve? The process in our office has become simplified because we use state-of-the art techniques to surgically place and completely restore your implants, all in our specially designed cosmetic and implant facility in Palm Beach Gardens. WeÂll schedule your implant surgery in our on-site surgical suite, where youÂll be kept comfortable and relaxed with a sedative, if necessary. Dr. Ajmo will place small, biocompat-ible implant posts precisely where your teeth are missing in your jaws. The same day, in many cases, he will attach abutments and temporary crowns to the implants. Your mouth will heal over the next few weeks and the implants will fuse to your jawbone over several months (a process called osseointegration). After the implants are securely fused to your jawbone, Dr. Ajmo will custom design perma-nent restorations that will look, feel and function like your real teeth. Your personal treatment plan might include a single tooth replacement with a cosmetic porcelain crown, the replacement of multiple teeth with permanent bridgework or a full set of replacement teeth. Dr. Ajmo also offers a variety of implant-retained denture options that firmly and securely sup-port removable appliances without the use of messy glues or denture adhe-sives. To ensure your comfort during implant procedures, we offer a vari-ety of relaxing sedation techniques, including mild oral and IV sedation. Since Dr. Ajmo is board certified in IV sedation and is highly skilled in all of these comprehensive implant services, you can be certain youÂre getting the most comfortable care pos-sible while feeling confident that youÂre receiving the absolute best in modern dentistry.

Setting the Gold Standard in Orthopedic Care 3360 Burns Road Â€ Palm Beach Gardens Â€ pbgmc.com Is your weight getting in the way? W eight gain is a frequent com-plaint from patients and is an ongoing lifetime struggle. Obesity is a rising epidemic in our country. In the United States, it is esti-mated that 93 million Americans are affected by obesity and almost 112,000 annual deaths are attributable to obe-sity. Individuals affected by obesity are at a higher risk for impaired mobility and experience a negative social stigma com-monly associated with obesity. Being affected by excess weight, obesity or morbid obe-sity significantly increases the risk of developing many other diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis and much more. Unlike diabetes and hyper-tension, obesity can-not hide from those around you.Weight management is a partnership between the patient, their family and the healthcare team. This partnership is one that is developed on an individual basis with each patient. Management of obesity includes diet, exercise, behavior modification and nutri-tional counseling. In most cases, medica-tions for weight-loss (pharmacotherapy), supervised very-low calorie diets, struc-tured meal plans and injectable vitamins like B12 are prescribed. Most people have little or no side effects.Getting a handle on eating behaviors is key to making a significant long-term change. While no one likes to keep food logs that require writing down all food eaten, this exercise has been shown to be important for long-term success. With all the variation in serving sizes, most individuals do not have a good under-standing of how many calories are actu-ally consumed in one day. Therefore, it is recommended that individuals keep a complete food log. This will also help the providers to get a better handle on areas of the diet to focus on at follow-up visits. The current weight-loss model as patients and providers know it, needs to be reversed. With pharmacotherapy as the core and foundation, then diet, exer-cise and behavioral modification as essen-tial adjuncts. Once a desirable weight is achieved, a maintenance program needs to be continued using pharmacotherapy, diet, exercise and behavior modification. The medications suppress appetite, con-trol cravings, improve insulin sensitivity and lower the metabolic set point. One particular method of weight loss using medications is with the use of prescription hCG. This also can be com-bined with lipotropic (fat burning) and B12 injections. Patients can lose up to 20 pounds in 20 days or 40 pounds in 40 days. Many studies have shown that accountability is one of the major fac-tors influencing the ability of individuals to maintain long-term weight loss. Obe-sity is not a disease thatÂs conquered in a day, month or year. It is a disease that must be fought every day for the rest of oneÂs life. Weekly weigh-ins are a useful tool to hold individuals accountable. Just knowing there will be a weekly weigh-in decreases caloric consumption. Other options for weight loss under the supervision of a health care pro-vider is The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method. It is a medically designed pro-tocol containing two key components Â„ weight loss and a healthier lifestyle education to assist you in maintaining your results after dieting. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is learning to live off of the bodyÂs own fat reserves. First the body depletes its simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and then turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy. Do you think you have a slow metabolism? Do you have trouble losing weight no matter what you do? Do you feel like your weight is getting in the way of your relationship, job and quality of life? Medically supervised weight loss is easier, faster and safer than standard diets because you are under the care of a physician throughout the course of your treatment. At Youthful Balance Medical Center, we can use medications and diet tools not available in commercial or self-directed diets.

4 healthy living AUGUST 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYChecklist for a Â“CareÂ”-versation with your parentÂ’s doctor H ow well your dad or mom com-municates with his or her doctor can have a big impact on their health care. Unfortunately, talking to the doctor isnÂt always easy for an older person. Often loved ones are afraid to ask questions, voice their concerns, and get suggestions. In 2017, we have a digital-driven, high-tech, medical environment where treatments are touted on TV and many health care ques-tions are answered by Google or WebMD. So it makes sense that todayÂs patient Â„ doctor relation-ship is more of a working partner-ship. As folks age, it becomes more important than ever to talk often, and feel comfort-able with their doctor because they have more medical conditions and treatments to discuss. Having an extra pair of eyes and ears, as well as moral support and someone to take notes can be very helpful, so con-sider accompanying your parent to the doctorÂs office. Help your senior parent have a ÂcareÂŽ-versation with their doc-tor! Use this checklist to support them in taking an active role in their health-care at the next appointment with their physician or geriatrician. 1. Before your parentÂs doctor visita. Listen to, and then make a list of the health concerns they have to take with you. Encourage them to be truthful Â„ being honest about how you are feel-ing is not Âweakness,ÂŽ and does NOT make you a Âcomplainer!ÂŽ b. Write down all that has transpired since their last visit. Note what condi-tions have changed, what new symp-toms have appeared, how their medica-tion is working, any tests or treatments since the last visit per other physicians consulted. c. Bring a complete list of any medications they are currently taking. d. Find out ahead of time if they will need to give a urine sample, skip break-fast because of a blood test, or have an X-ray/MRI beforehand and then bring the images along. e. If this is a NEW doctor, be sure to have their complete medical history sent to the medical office ahead of time. 2. During the doctor visita. Be sure your loved one shares as much information with the doctor as pos-sible about their habits and routine, from what they eat to how they sleep, and what changes have recently occurred. b. Remind them not to belittle, or leave out any symptoms or changes because they think them unimportant. The fre-quency, severity, and what brought them on needs to brought to the doctorÂs attention. c. Review with the doctor all current medications, possible side effects or inter-actions with other medicines and over the counter drugs. d. Make sure your parent is open about their mental and emotional state as well as their physical issues. Talk about any life changes they recently experienced such as selling their house and moving, or death of a loved one. Depression and anxiety are real, and can cause symptoms or mimic medical conditions. 3. When a diagnosis is madea. TAKE NOTES! b. Find out what medical tests are needed and why, what it might cost, and how best to prepare for the test. How long will it be before you get the results? c. If you are bringing your parents to the doctor to discuss results from tests already taken, make sure the doctor explains what the results mean, what may have caused the condition, and how long it may last. Can it be cured? Treated or managed? d. If the doctor prescribes a medication, find out the dosing directions and whether there are any restrictions while taking it. Address possible side effects, what to do if a dose is forgotten, or refills are needed. e. If your parent must make an immediate decision regarding a treat-ment for a serious illness, be sure they thoroughly discuss the choices and options with the doctor, including the risks, benefits, timing, and co-pays. 4. Before you leave the doctorÂs officea. Ask if the doctor has any brochures or educational resources related to your parentÂs medical condition, or the medi-cations and treatments he has prescribed. b. Ask what proactive changes Mom or Dad might need to make to their life-style and daily habits to improve health and well-being. Adult children must remember not to dismiss a loved oneÂs medical symptoms as Ânormal aging!ÂŽ Dementia is some-times a misdiagnosed physical condi-tion that can be reversed. Not all trem-ors mean Mom or Dad has ParkinsonÂs, but early diagnosis of both dementia and ParkinsonÂs, and many other illness, is extremely important Â„ so it is criti-cal to discuss, not dismiss, symptoms with the doctor. Keep in mind that pri-vate duty homecare services can also have a positive impact on your parentsÂ health. A Home Health Agency can pro-vide transportation and companionship for doctor visits when a family mem-ber is not available, as well as another set of eyes and ears that can report back to you. If the doctor feels your parent would benefit from additional assistance with their daily routine, an agency can coordinate with the doctor to provide a caregiver or companion to help at home while they are recovering, under treatment, or dealing with post-operative protocols. Q Â„ Visiting Angels of the Palm Beaches has a refreshing and award-winning approach to homecare relationships. Let our ÂAngelsÂŽ help you or a loved one while recovering from illness, accident or surgery, or assist with the care and companionship needed to remain comfortably and safely at home while aging in place, or living with AlzheimerÂs and ParkinsonÂs.

Project Director, Car-rie Browne, shared the results of the 10 groups who received last yearÂs $2,500 mini-grants. Highlights included a collabo-ration between American Youth Soccer and the culinary program at Jupiter Com-munity High School to hold a banquet featuring healthy food and education for the soccer league and the new ÂRec on the MoveÂŽ outreach program hosted by Town of Jupiter Recreation Department to bring healthy activities to our community parks. Guests also heard about Healthier JupiterÂs monthly ÂWalk & TalkÂŽ program, its fund-ing of Jupiter Tequesta Athletic League (JTAA) scholarships and seasonal Jupi-ter FarmerÂs Market at El Sol, and the weekly ÂZumba in the ParkÂŽ program, among others. Joanna Peluso, Healthier JupiterÂs outreach coordinator, shared the results of their second yearlong health survey, which showed that 62 percent of our residents feel they need to lose weight, 65 percent would like to be more active, and only 40 percent are aware of the risk factors for Type 2 diabetes. Healthier Jupiter is a community initiative addressing health and quality of life issues starting with diabetes. Diabetes was selected because promoting healthy lifestyles can lower diabetes risk and complications as well as many other chronic diseases. Mrs. Browne also unveiled Healthier JupiterÂs new ÂWalk on JupiterÂŽ initiative; a physical fitness challenge to encourage everyone in our commu-nity to walk and COLLECTIVELY achieve the distance it would take to land on the planet Jupiter.

6 healthy living AUGUST 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWhat women should know about stroke PALM BEACH GARDENS MEDICAL CENTER D id you know that stroke is the third leading cause of death for women? Approximately 55,000 more women than men have a stroke each year, and it kills twice as many women as breast cancer each year. ThatÂs why it is so important to be famil-iar with the symptoms and risks associated with women and stroke. When it comes to a stroke, every minute counts. If you, or some-one you are with, expe-riences the symptoms of stroke, seek medical attention immediately. The sooner treatment begins, the better chance for recovery. Women and men experience many of the same symptoms of stroke: Q Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg Q Confusion Q Difficulty speaking Q Problems with vision Q Loss of balance or coordination Q Trouble walking Q Sudden onset of a severe headache for no known cause. However, some signs of stroke are unique to women, such as: Q Rapid onset of hiccups Q Nausea Q Fatigue Q Chest pain Q Face and limb pain Q Shortness of breath or heart palpitations. Experiencing stroke symptoms? The signs of stroke require immediate attention. Never wait more than five minutes to dial 9 -1-1 if you e xperience even one of the symptoms. You could be experiencing a stroke even if you donÂt exhibit all of the symp-toms. ItÂs also important that you check the time, as the responding medical provid-ers will need to know when your first symptoms occurred. Strokes caused by blood clots, which are called ischemic strokes and are the most common type, can be treated with clot-busting drugs such as tPA, or tissue plasminogen activator. But in order to be effective, the medication must be administered within three hours of the initial onset of symptoms. Anticoagulants, such as warfarin and antiplatelet drugs, such as aspirin, may be prescribed to help prevent a stroke in people who are high risk. In other cases, surgery may be recommended to treat or prevent stroke. Carotid endarterectomy can be performed to remove fatty deposits that clog the carotid artery in the neck. If a person does have a stroke, rehabilitation can help rebuild strength, capability and confidence to continue daily activities. Risk factors Women and men share many of the same risk factors for stroke. While a person of any age can have a stroke, risk increases with age. In fact, the chances of having a stroke double every 10 years after the age of 55. Other risk factors include a family history of stroke, high blood pressure or cholesterol, smok-ing, diabetes, being overweight and not exercising. Q Women also have some exclusive risk factors that could raise their risk of having a stroke, which include:Q Taking birth control pillsQ Experiencing natural changes in the body during pregnancy that increase blood pressure and put stress on the heartQ Using hormone replacement therapy to relieve symptoms of menopauseQ Being postmenopausal and having a waist that is larger than 35.2 inches and a triglyceride level higher than 128 milligrams per literQ Suffering from migraines In addition, AfricanAmerican women have more strokes than Cau-casian women, and stroke is the number one cause of death for Hispanic women. Prevention The good news is that there are steps to prevent stroke. Women can actively reduce the risk of stroke by: Q Monitoring their blood pressure Q Not smoking Q Knowing their cholesterol and triglyceride levels and taking steps to improve those levels, if necessary Q Limiting alcohol Q Maintaining a healthy weightGenerally, it is safe for young, healthy women to take birth control pills. How-ever, risk of stroke increases in some women who are over 35, smoke, have diabetes and/or high blood pressure/cholesterol.

One minute we are striving and on top of our game, the next moment we are in a doctorÂs office, waiting for a variety of invasive proce-dures to keep us around a little bit longer. And, even if we do manage to slow down the effects of aging, mortality is always right around the corner. The human experience of aging is interwoven with vulnerability. And what if itÂs OK to be vulnerable? What if wisdom and connection, depth and richness all come from the realization of impermanence? You donÂt have to pretend the sensations of aging are comfortable, or pleasant, or wanted. But what you can do is be present as it all bubbles up. And just maybe, if we can find a way to stay present we might be surprised to discover that being older than we were yesterday is part of being alive. Enjoy the changes of life, the new discoveries that come with every breath. ÂMindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present; inviting ourselves to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mind-fulness and equanimity right here and right now.ÂŽ Â… Jon Kabat-Zin The new Calcagnini Center for Mindfulness at Jupiter Medical Center is a beautiful, soothing space overlooking the Jacqueline Fiske Healing Garden that is designed to teach people to be more mindful and to manage the ten-sion of everyday life. The ongoing practice of mindfulness helps by lowering stress levels that are often a contributing factor to Âdis-ease.ÂŽ In addition, those who practice this dis-cipline can achieve an enhanced sense of balance in their lives and a greater interest in learning the ÂhowÂŽ of tak-ing good care of themselves, enhancing their ability to focus on overall wellness. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes are the cornerstone of the services offered at the Calcagnini Center, in addition to other services like meditation sessions, workshops, health coaching, and other integrative medi-cine practices such as Yoga, Tai Ji Quan and massage, to name a few. To register for the MBSR program, visit www.jupitermed.com/mindfulness or to learn more about our services, call 561-660-1828. Q BREATHEFrom page 1 A quick practice in mindfulness>> When fears, worries, and concerns about aging overtake you, try this three-minute breathing space practice, which is used in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction to maintain openness and curiosity. >> 1. Breathe in. Notice any thought bubbles that appear, including negative thoughts about aging. Notice what these thoughts trigger in your body, and which emo-tions arise. Continually remind yourself to be gentle, open, and curious Â— even if (especially if) you feel overwhelmed. Aging happens. ItÂ’s OK. >> 2. After a moment of opening to whatever you noticed in your mind and your body, rest your attention lightly but rmly on the rise and fall of your belly, feeling the stretch of the inbreath, the release of the outbreath. Your body is your anchor to the present moment. Notice when your attention seeks distraction from being here. Do not judge. Simply notice and then gently return to the rise and fall of your breathing. >> 3. After a minute of repeatedly returning to the breath, expand your attention out into the rest of your body, noticing whatever sensations arise. Be aware of your facial expression and your posture. Then stretch a tiny bit further and notice the space around you. Be here now.
10 healthy living AUGUST 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYGet your kids on their back-to-school sleep cycle PALM BEACH CHILDRENÂS HOSPITAL N ow that school is back in ses-sion, some children may still be adjusting to their new bedtime. After spending a whole sum-mer staying up later than normal, itÂs time to once again help establish a new routine to help maximize your childÂs performance in school. Although some families might have had a seamless transition back to an earlier bedtime, here are some help-ful tips for those families who may still be in this process. How much sleep should your child be getting? The amount of sleep children need gradually decreases as they mature. Newborns usually nap about 16 hours through the day and night, while older children need about 10 hours of sleep per night. If a child doesnÂt get enough sleep, it may lead to difficulties in school, anxiety disorders and behavioral problems. Parents can help by following these steps: Q Stick to the same bedtime every night, even on weekends. Q Turn off the television, video games and computer at least one hour before going to bed and start winding down with a consistent routine that includes brushing teeth, going to the bathroom and maybe reading a short story. Q Make sure the place to sleep is comfortable. Q Keep a low noise level in the house while the child is asleep. How to help adjust to early mornings While helping your child go to bed earlier on school nights is a big accomplishment, itÂs only half the battle! Weeks of laidback mornings are now refocused on getting up early, getting dressed, brushing hair and teeth, making sure all supplies are prepared and having an adequate breakfast within a stricter time frame. Here are some techniques that may help with your new morning schedules: Q Make sure you have enough time to get going Â„ it could take up to a week for a child to transition from Âsleeping inÂŽ to waking up early. Parents can help this transition by gradually waking their kids up earli-er in 15 or 30 minute increments, but ensure that they still get the hours of sleep they need for their age. Q Prepare as much as you can the night before Â„ this may help reduce the morning scramble leading up to your departure for school and work. Try picking outfits, packing lunches and loading up book bags before pre-paring for bed the night before. Q DonÂt let the weekends undo all your hard work Â„ the last thing youÂd want is for your child to sleep in all weekend, potentially erasing all the structure youÂve helped create for your weekday schedule. Encour-age your kids to stick to their week-day wakeup time, even on weekends, by explaining that this may help them adjust to their new sleep sched-ule sooner. We heal for them The medical professionals at the Palm Beach ChildrenÂs Hospital at St. MaryÂs Medical Center are trained to treat your child for a variety of con-ditions. Our hospital treats patients needing treatment for pediatric care including surgical intervention, emer-gent or traumatic injuries, orthopedic problems and more.

Q Pebbles in your plumbing?DonÂ’t let kidney stones send you to the emergency room NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHEach year, more than 1 million people in the U.S. rush to the emergency room with pain caused by a kidney stone. Many of them say passing a kidney stone is more painful than giving birth. Kidney stones are hard, pebble-like pieces of material that form in one or both kidneys. TheyÂre caused by high levels of certain minerals in your urine. Stones vary in size from tiny crystals that can only be seen with a microscope to stones more than an inch wide. Tiny stones may pass out of your body with-out your even noticing. With larger stones, you wonÂt be so lucky. Stones that are larger than a pencil eraser can get stuck in the urinary tract Â„ and that can really hurt. Everyone is at some risk for developing kidney stones. ÂIt is a very common condition,ÂŽ says Dr. Ziya Kirkali, a urologist at the National Institutes of Health, adding one out of 11 individuals in the U.S. is affected by the disease. Kidney stones can form at any age, but they usually appear during middle age (40s to 60s). Of those who develop one stone, half will develop at least one more in the future. ÂProbably one of the most important reasons why people form stones is dehydration,ÂŽ Dr. Kirkali says. When urine is too concentrated, minerals can build up and form stones. ÂI canÂt over-emphasize the importance of drink-ing plenty of water, because thatÂs the most effective way of preventing kidney stone disease.ÂŽ During the warmest months of the year, youÂre at greatest risk of becoming dehydrated. ÂSo it is really important to drink more than you usually drink when itÂs hot outside, compared with how much you drink during the cooler days or months,ÂŽ Dr. Kirkali says. To detect kidney stones, your doctor may order lab or imaging tests. Lab tests look in urine for blood, signs of infec-tion, minerals (like calcium) and stones. Blood tests can also detect high levels of certain minerals. About 80 percent of all stones are made of calcium oxalate, Dr. Kirkali says. Knowing what the stones are made of can help guide treatment. Treatment also depends on the stoneÂs size and location. CT scans or plain X-ray imaging can help your doc-tor pinpoint the location and estimate the size of a kidney stone. Depending on what your doctor finds, you might be prescribed medicine and advised to drink a lot of fluids. Or you might need a procedure to break up or remove the kidney stone. There are different procedures for breaking up or removing kidney stones. One method delivers shock waves to the stone from outside of the body. Other strategies involve inserting a tool into the body, either through the urinary tract or directly into the kidney through surgery. After the stone is located, it can be broken up into smaller pieces. NIH-supported scientists are studying ways to prevent kidney stones from returning. ÂWe always tell our patients to drink more, but itÂs not so easy to really increase your fluid intake,ÂŽ Dr. Kirkali says. A new study is testing a method to encourage people to drink more fluids each day. Other NIH-fund-ed studies are trying to unravel why some people seem more at risk of devel-oping kidney stones. Still others are looking into how to better detect stones and treat them. DonÂt let the pain of kidney stones send you to the emergency room. Keep hydrated. But if you develop any of the symptoms listed in the accompanying box, see your doctor right away. Q Kidney stone cluesSee your health-care provider if you have any of these symptoms:>> Sharp, severe pains in your back, side, lower belly or groin >> Nausea and vomiting >> Blood in your urine, making it look pink, red, or brown >> Constant need to empty your bladder >> Pain when you urinate >> Dif culty urinating
