thePeople mean well, but talking with loved ones about final wishes or life-or-death healthcare decisions can be difficult. Eighty-two percent of Americans say theyd like to put their wishes in writing, but less than half do. Charlie Ring acknowledges this. It continues to be a delicate subject. I cant give you a distilled answer why. A lot of it has to do with a culture where talking about dying is taboo. But to Mr. Ring, its just a part of life. Were dying the day we are born, he says. Mr. Ring, who has worked with seniors in a number of nonprofit agencies and charities, most notably Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches, says fewer than 30 percent of Americans have had a conversation about end-of-life care. No one wants to think of the darker what ifs, he says, but by the time they happen, often suddenly, its too late for decision making or appointing someone as a healthcare proxy. Its always too early to talk about death until its too late, he said. What happens to the 87-yearold woman taken to the emergency room with maybe just chest pains who winds up in ICU, then has to have feeding tubes or be put on a ventilator? he said. Now she cant speak. Once certain medical procedures are started, they are hard to change without legal intervention, he said. And theres the financial burden. Now were up to $17,000 a day in hospital charges maybe for care that wasnt wanted. Doctors can keep you alive for as long as they want if you dont have directives in writing. Some people want to fight up to a point, while others want a quiet and peaceful end without stress, he said, and without putting Charlie Ring: Lets Talk SoonINSIDE: How you can cut the cord.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYThe irony sessionOne-hundred-sixty well-fed, middleaged men and women working in a building with 66 public and 11 private restrooms with showers at the corner of Apalachee Parkway and Monroe Street in Tallahassee wrapped up the irony session of the Florida Legislature last week, demonstrating a master-level artistry in handcrafted irony. All of them swore they love safe schoolchildren and art and a healthy environment. But that appears to be a lot of political flatulence, which they probably flushed down all those toilets, like the governor, who also works in the building. In the wake of a horrific massacre of schoolchildren by a man with a militarystyle weapon, the ironists created new gun-control legislation, the first of its kind. Ironically, the new regulations will actually introduce more guns into schools, putting weapons in the hands of teachers. The logic is clear: We need to protect our children from wacko gunmen using military-style assault weapons with high-capacity magazines by letting experts in high-capacity Algebra and proper English sentences shoot it out with the wackos, while under-gunned, under-trained, trying to grade papers, and convincing children with low self-esteem they have value in the world. Meanwhile, and in one of the greatest ironies of all, legislators who have received A-plus ratings from the National Rifle Association for their resistance to any gun control whatsoever suddenly found themselves sued the very next day by the NRA, for being a bunch of liberal patsies. They had the audacity to raise the legal age required to purchase rifles and shotguns from 18 to 21. Thats one. And heres another irony. In the face of reliable data that the arts bring massive economic and cultural benefits to communities ($1 spent returns $5, numbers show), legislators again demonstrating their mastery of the art of irony decided to defund the arts, taking away state support that demonstrably led to much richer communities throughout Florida. Four years ago, the legislature funded vetted programs with grants at 100 percent. If your nonprofit got through the somewhat arduous grant-writing and vetting process and had a legitimate artistic contribution, it might get some helpful funding. That was good for you, it, and everybody in your community. Now, such organizations will get either nothing, or 6.7 percent of what they used to be offered in grants. But legislators claimed they love the arts, and proved it: They parceled out $4 million for nine programs that were not vetted, in districts that happen to have powerful, well-connected politicians, points out Jim Brock, an English professor at Florida Gulf Coast University who also runs the Ghostbird Theatre Company in Estero. Taken on average, thats $444,000 per program. Its classic pork-barrel spending, Mr. Brock concluded in a social media statement. That spending, he said, is not based on merit but on good ol provincialism and political favor. The irony is that Gov. Scott has a record of vetoing these projects that havent undertaken standard agency review. Not this year; by November, Gov. Scott wants to become U.S. Sen. Scott. Vetoing pork-barrel spending could prove highly unpopular with some influential people. Meanwhile, more than 500 nonprofit arts organizations in Florida will get little or no money from the state, lose donors who rely on tax-deduction incentives to give, and be less able or unable to reach underserved communities or provide some free programming to the public. But nobody should whine. If you want public art, you can go to Washington, D.C. There, deep inside the beltway, the federal government sponsors this thing called the Smithsonian Institution, where the art is free, courtesy of American taxpayers.Federal government influence, however benign it may seem, is anathema to this legislature, however. In another great irony of the spring session, legislators proclaimed their love of an environment they swore to protect by taking over federal protections such as the Endangered Species Act and federally required Environmental Impact Studies.Smiling broadly (yet again), they ushered House Bill 7043 through the digestive tract of state government faster than grass through a goose, loosely but not formally promising to carry on the federal protections under their own state authority. Many of these legislators have proven themselves good friends of developers, miners and corporate farmers. So now, if they happen to overlook an EIS, they cant be blamed if some hapless endangered creature like a gopher tortoise or a scrub jay gets plowed under in the name of profit, progress and private property rights. While the state traditionally has maintained its own codified environmental protections (greatly reduced by the Scott administration), those do not include a required analysis of every project to learn what long-term effects it will have on wetlands how it might change an environment completely or deplete resources that cant be recovered, for example. The federal EIS has done that. And just as importantly, the EIS aims to offer alternative solutions to a project, rather than just cutting it off. Thats more work and more trouble for miners, developers and big-ag farmers, but it helps everybody in the state, ultimately. The irony here is simple, as others have pointed out: By appearing to step up to the plate and assume full responsibility for wetland protections in Florida, these Florida legislators are now poised to abrogate that responsibility. If you doubt that, recall Amendment One in 2014, the Florida Land and Water Conservation Initiative passed by about 75 percent of Florida voters. It required that 33 percent of the net revenue from excise tax on documents for the next 20 years to be used to buy, improve and maintain conservation and recreation land. Legislators have ignored its strict intent, after promising to carry it out.But they love Floridas environment, they say. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com 1681 N.

That assumes it was ever raveled. Now, however, it is about to be Hopeless. Yes, thats a cheesy pun to note that Hope Hicks, who has been among the most trusted of Donald Trumps aides since even before he became a candidate, is departing the pressure-cooker White House. Although still in her 20s, Trump leaned heavily on her as his only front-stabber in a sea of intrigue. She ended up as communications director, but shes not the first one to bail or be bailed from that spot. Remember Sean Spicer, who provided one of the primo embarrassments on the first full day? During his crazed, unkempt news conference, he browbeat reporters, demanding that they hew to POTUS fantasies about his inaugural crowd size. He showed a superhuman willingness to be both nasty at the same time he was being publicly ridiculed by his boss, the meanest demeanor of all. He took it for six full months. Then, along came Anthony Scaramucci, and Spicer left in a huff. The Mooch lasted all of 11 days before his bizarre behavior and profane rantings proved too much for even this administration. And now, its Hicks so unlike Scaramucci its hard to believe they are the same species whos throwing in the towel. Hicks is just the latest high-level staffer to fly the White House coop. About half of those who were there on opening day are not now. Where do we start? Reince Priebus, the first chief of staff, is long gone. So is Steve Bannon, Priebus competition to be top of the heap. Robert Porter, staff secretary, which is a vital position, is out, consumed by accusations of spousal abuse. That story was made even more convoluted by the fact that he was dating Hicks at the time of his demise. Now top White House economic adviser Gary Cohn has resigned after losing the fight over tariffs and Rex Tillerson has been fired as secretary of state. Who knows whos next to go? By rights, Jeff Sessions should have demonstrated personal pride and said See yall many moons ago. President Trump has made it a part of his routine to scathingly insult Sessions, but Sessions either loves to be abused or takes vindictive pleasure in thwarting the presidents intentions to mess with Robert Muellers investigation. With Sessions gone, the president would have an easier time throwing impediments in Muellers way. All he does now, as the walls slowly close in on him, is angrily tweet about the lurking investigators and particularly the FBI. Of great interest is the current focus on son-in-law Jared Kushner. Will he be the next to go since hes had his security clearance reduced, making it impossible to handle all the assignments he was unqualified to do? What if he decides, unlike Sessions, that he cant tolerate being so brutally mocked? Not only is there the diminished security mortification, but the underlying questions raised about his business practices. So will Kushner resign? If he does, will wife Ivanka Trump join him, leaving behind her influential role as assistant to her father, the president? Hicks often is described as like family. Ivanka and Jared are family. Its perversely fascinating to watch. Of course, the political enemies insist that their real entertainment would be the drama surrounding the removal of President Trump himself. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. The agony of Jeff SessionsAttorney General Jeff Sessions has been attacked and belittled by President Donald Trump more than Vladimir Putin has. Trump has had rough patches with most of his top officials, but there is a particular poignancy in his humiliating treatment of his own attorney general, who got on board the Trump Train early and supports the presidents policy instincts as much as anyone. But Sessions is not personally loyal, at least not in the way Trump expects, and so the man who looked past the presidents erratic temperament when he decided to support him now routinely feels the brunt of it. Trump bangs on Sessions in public, the only purpose of which seems to be venting his own spleen and personally discomfiting Sessions as much as possible. For Sessions, a dignified man who would never treat anyone else the way the president treats him, it has to be painful, and all the more so because of the irony of it. Just a few short years ago, Sessions was the odd man out in the U.S. Senate. He fought rearguard actions on immigration (successfully), inveighed against free-trade orthodoxy and argued the GOP should be a party of workers when few were inclined to listen. Endorsing Trump was a crazy gambit to effect a revolution in the party and it worked. You would have expected Sessions to be the ideological conscience of the administration and a close partner of the president, the Ed Meese of the Trump administration. Instead, he is assiduously at work implementing the Trump agenda and gets beaten about the head and shoulders for his trouble. Sessions recusal in the Russian investigation set in motion events leading to the appointment of Robert Mueller, and Trump will probably never forgive him. He considers his attorney general weak and disloyal on the one question that matters most to him: protection of himself and his family. His anger toward Sessions isnt leavened with institutional knowledge, hence his strange blast at Sessions over the fact that, appropriately, the DOJ inspector general is going to look at allegations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse. Sessions felt compelled to push back against the president in a public statement, and yet again, the civics textbooks will have to be revised to account for how government works in the Trump era. The ongoing spat with Sessions is another reason the administration gives off a sense of teetering on the edge of a crisis, not because of exogenous events (were experiencing peace and prosperity), but because of the ultimate endogenous factor: the president of the United States, without whom the administration wouldnt exist in the first place. If Trump were to fire Sessions, which seems unlikely, or to eventually push him over the edge into quitting, he probably wouldnt be able to get another attorney general confirmed. Who would be acceptable both to Trump, who wants more personal loyalty, and to the Senate, which isnt going to approve a crony? And what graybeard with independent credibility would sign up to serve? So, Sessions isnt going anywhere. Whether the attorney general considers that a reprieve or a punishment, only he knows.

KATIE KREISChiropractic Physician Full Physical Therapy Facility stress on a family left behind. If a conversation was had before she got sick, this could have resulted in less aggressive, and maybe less painful treatment. Its because of scenarios like this hes created a nonprofit group called Lets Talk Soon, a program that helps people start critical end-of-life care conversations. Its never too early to talk about it, he said, and the conversations arent limited to seniors or those already sick. You could be in a car accident and unable to speak. That happens to people at any age. What we want to do is engage families and friends in meaningful conversations about quality of life and end-of-life care, he said. These talks will start a process where important wishes and directives are transferred to people who can implement them. Its not enough to just mention how or if youd like to be buried or cremated, or where, and tell only one family member or friend, he said. It covers medical decisions and such things as hospice care before death, and sometimes painful choices, such as whether to prolong life with machines, and how long to do so before letting go. You really have to let everyone who might be involved know, and put it in writing, he said. That includes legal representatives, doctors, clergy, friends and, of course, family often the hardest ones to talk to. Its a very emotional thing, Mr. Ring said. People dont want to think of their loved ones dying. But those are the most important people to communicate with, he said, and having a conversation to convey wishes should be done to avoid burdens all around. It can also clear up disagreements among families faced with hard choices. It happens frequently. Often, the children are at odds with what their parents wanted, or with each other over lifesaving measures, and final wishes arent honored. Its more than just a Living Will, although thats a piece of it, he said. Naming a health care proxy, or surrogate, is most important. This, too, can be a controversial choice within families, but its a critical one, he said. That person becomes a decisive voice for someone who cant speak for themselves. The Lets Talk Soon program, offered free to groups such as condo associations, churches, temples and community organizations, provides materials and coaching to approach the conversations, teaches what and when to discuss them, and how to get documents in order before a life-threatening event happens. Its based on The Conversation Project, begun by columnist Ellen Goodman and some friends. They gathered with medical professionals and clergy and others to discuss good deaths and bad deaths. They realized the good deaths involved people who had a plan for their end-of-life care. Soon, it became a movement within the group and spread throughout their communities, to get people involved in discussing the important decisions. Mr. Ring saw a need for the program in Palm Beach County, and decided to form the Lets Talk Soon organization. He or a trained representative will meet with groups, or individuals, providing booklets and materials to help people start the conversations answering key points and posing questions for discussion. Things like What do you value most? Do you want to be surrounded by loved ones or do you want to be alone? At what point in time do you want to be taken off any further life-saving measures? The starter kit also includes information about choosing a health care proxy, and creating state-recognized health care directives and legal forms to be used in case of incapacity. A DNR (do not resuscitate) order doesnt apply to EMT personnel, but not many know that, he said. It is also not a stand-in for a Living Will. The program is not just for seniors, he said, but older kids, too, who want to talk to their parents. Each demographic comes at it from a different perspective. Starting the conversation is the hardest part, he said, but once the door is open and the topic approached with compassion and information, peace of mind soon follows, he said. Its a relief to have that burden lifted on both sides, he said. And thats his reason for starting Lets Talk Soon. Its his purpose, something else hes examined in his life. Ive always thought we want to leave the world a little better place, he said. Its part of the journey. Dying is just the next phase of the journey.

CaplanNextera Energy, Inc., Parent Company of Florida Power & Light Company PET TALESTwist of fate BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationA french fry and quick veterinary intervention saved the life of Clu Carradines 10-year-old Samoyed, Poppy. Carradine and Poppy were driving from home in Lompoc, California, to Ohio for a series of dog shows. After a stop at a fast food drive-thru for a burger and fries, Carradine pulled back onto the freeway, reached into the bag and handed a french fry to Poppy, who was riding in her crate in the back seat. Poppy didnt take it. Carradine offered it again. Still Poppy refused it. Carradine was alarmed. It was unheard of for Poppy to refuse food, let alone a french fry. She pulled over to see if Poppy needed to relieve herself, and what she saw when she let the dog out of the crate made her blood run cold. Poppy had a huge, swollen belly, and her sides felt tight and solid. I knew immediately what this was and that it was deadly, Carradine says. Poppy had gastric dilatation volvulus (GDV), more commonly known as bloat. The stomach swells (dilatation) and twists (volvulus). Its a real emergency that can cause death within a few hours without rapid stabilization and surgical intervention. Carradine and Poppy were more than four hours away from home, in a desert town where they knew no one. Carradine Googled the nearest veterinary hospital and found one about a mile away. As they arrived, Poppy retched, brown fluid spewing. Carradine raced in with her, shouting, My dog is bloating! I need a vet right now. An X-ray showed that the stomach had clearly bloated, but the veterinarian did not have the facilities to treat such an emergency. The technician called a nearby emergency clinic, got Poppy and the crate cleaned up, and sent Carradine on her way with the X-rays and blood work information. At Animal Medical Center in Hesperia, California, Poppy was immediately prepped for surgery. The veterinarian, Meredith Kennedy, DVM, was cautious but optimistic, given Poppys good physical condition. It helped that Poppy had vomited early on and that Carradine recognized the danger and could get Poppy treated so quickly. When Carradine commented that a french fry had probably saved Poppys life, Dr. Kennedy said, Yes, but the fact that you knew her so well and acted so fast has everything to do with it. The procedure to reorient the stomach was successful. Once that was done, Dr. Kennedy also tacked the stomach to the abdominal wall, a procedure called gastropexy, to prevent any future episodes. Afterward, Poppy needed IV fluids, antibiotics, heavy pain medication and 24-hour monitoring. Currently, shes still hospitalized but is able to walk and ask for belly rubs, and she has regained her appetite. Bloat is seen most often in large and giant breeds with deep chests, such as Great Danes, Weimaraners, Saint Bernards, Gordon setters, Irish setters and standard poodles, but it can also occur in small-breed dogs and in cats. In highrisk dogs, it can be a good idea to have a gastropexy performed at the same time as spay and neuter surgery. Older dogs like Poppy are at greater risk. Other risk factors include eating too quickly, eating from a raised bowl, having only one large meal a day and eating dry food only. There may be an inherited tendency toward GDV as well. And sometimes it just happens. Know your dog, and know the signs of bloat, Carradine says. They can be very subtle, like not taking a french fry when the dog is a french fry fiend. You cant do anything but get to the vet immediately, take surgical action and do the gastropexy so it doesnt happen again.

DIXIE HWY, WEST PALM BEACH MON-SAT 10:30AM-5PMTHE ELEPHANTS FOOT ANTIQUES832-0170 WAREHOUSE SOLDYou sometimes question how can I be so unhappy when Im married to such a charming and successful husband? But then you remember how he constantly puts you down in front of your family. How he belittles you and questions your intelligence. And how he constantly controls you, manipulates you, and prevents you from having normal relationships with friends and loved ones. Youre not a greedy person. All you want is to be happy, and feel appreciated in your life, and in your marriage. But you know deep down that this is never going to get better. Your husband is not changing. In fact, hes just getting worse. Divorce is something you never thought youd ever experience, but you know you must leave the marriage if youre ever going to have a chance at happiness. And you know nows the time. Your children have grown into adults and youre not getting any younger. But at the same time youre worried. You dont know where to start, or how all this needs to happen. What you do know is hes going to make things dicult as youve seen how hes dealt before with others that have crossed him. You feel all alone. Like a prisoner of your own circumstances. Youre worried that nobody will see you and your situation for what it really is. At times, you feel like it will be impossible to ever get out of this unless you leave only with the shirt on your back. But its not going to be that simple, as you need to secure your nancial future. All of this makes you think about whether you should just put your energy into saving the marriage (again). If you identify with this DRAMATIZATION youre likely married to a husband with a personality disorder. Hes probably a Narcissist. If youve never heard this before you should take some time to read up on narcissism. Everything will probably start to make more sense. Try your best to realize that you are not alone. Everyone, including you, deserves to be happy and feel appreciated. And just as you decided to do what ultimately led you to your husband, you can also make the decision to be free of him. While your divorce will likely not be hassle free, there are some basic things you can learn that can minimize your husbands ability to make the divorce process harder than it needs to be.

The awards were given Jan. 27 at the Kravis Centers Khoury Family Dance Rehearsal Hall. The award program engages students from Title I high schools and provides the opportunity for them to perform short selections from William Shakespeares works before a panel of distinguished judges. The top winner, earning a $1,000 cash prize, was Morgan Kennedy, a junior at Boynton Beach Community High School. Two others, Daniel Powers and Mitchell Saulog, both seniors at Royal Palm Beach Community High School, each earned $750. Students receiving honorable mention were: Ashley Rivas and Kathleen Wilkinson of Boynton Beach Community High School and Carlos Riviera of Atlantic High School. Students selected as distinguished participants were: Saneya Graves and Savanna Sweeney of Boynton Beach Community High School, Sefania Jacques of Atlantic High School and Kathie Torres of Royal Palm Beach Community High School. My father loved Shakespeares works and would recite passages to us around the dinner table, said Amanda Lebow Distenfeld. My parents understood that beyond the beauty of Shakespeares words, the discipline it takes to study and practice a soliloquy and perform before an audience helps students gain confidence and prepare for whatever career paths they pursue in life.

HEALTHY LIVINGTaking steps to prevent cognitive declineAlison came home from visiting her mother, Jean, at the nursing facility and burst into heartbreaking tears. How could life be so cruel and unfair? Jean had been the smartest, most vibrant and fun-loving person Alison had ever known. Now, Alzheimers disease had robbed Jean of the simplest of functions and had compromised the once oh-soproud woman of her basic dignity. Alison felt so helpless as she saw the mother she had adored, slowing slipping away from her. Why did this happen to Jean? Could this have been prevented?Unfortunately, most of us are unprepared for the cruel indignities we may suffer when facing serious cognitive or physical incapacities. Individuals who are suffering from Alzheimers Disease (AD) will find themselves living in a world that becomes increasingly more confusing, with frightening limitations as the disease progresses. According to The National Institute of Health website, Alzheimers Disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. As symptoms worsen over time, the disease will likely progress from an earlier stage of mild confusion and memory loss to moderate, and then more severe stages where an individual might not recognize those closest to them, and are totally dependent on caretakers for their basic living needs. Caring for a loved one with AD can be all-consuming, laden with a range of complicated, overwhelming emotions. What can be especially cruel about AD for everyone involved is believing that we have no control over whether we will be afflicted by AD and that were powerless to head off the ravages of the illness. Just like with Alison and her family in the fictionalized vignette above, individuals affected by AD and their family members cant help but feel that the rug has been pulled out from under them and that theres nowhere to turn. Many of those affected by AD understandably remain discouraged by the limits of available resources to treat and/or slow down the progression of this heart-breaking disease. Many find available medications and treatment plans woefully limited. But perhaps the future is not quite so grim as we may fear. Many of those on the cutting edge of medical research have been working tirelessly to come up with promising answers, reporting that there may be effective medications coming down the pike. And, importantly, many experts are convinced that there ARE proactive steps that we, as individuals, can take to improve our statistical chances against developing AD. At a recent conference sponsored by the Massachusetts General Hospital Leadership Council for Psychiatry in Palm Beach, a keynote speaker, Dr. Olivia I Okereke, presented her encouraging research, offering the general public a more proactive means for addressing issues of brain health. Dr. Okereke reports that over 6 million people are struggling with AD in the United States, and that there are several major risk factors that might impact a persons likelihood of developing AD: diabetes, midlife hypertension, smoking, depression, cognitive inactivity or low education and physical inactivity. Studies conducted by Dr. Okereke and her colleagues assert the heartening possibilities of proactively heading off or slowing cognitive decline and depression in the elderly by making specific lifestyle changes. Some studies have shown that those who begin a Mediterranean diet and who actively follow it going forward are giving themselves the best opportunity to have healthy brain aging. So, what exactly is a Mediterranean diet? This is a diet high in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole-grain cereals; high in mono-unsaturated fats (olive oil) and polyunsaturated fats (nuts) and low in saturated fats (butter); moderate/high fish (has omega 3s), low/moderate low-fat dairy (cheese, Greek yogurt), low in red meat, poultry, high-fat dairy. Moderate alcohol. This translates to five servings of whole fruits and vegetables in a day, and choosing more fish and seafood, with a reduction of red meat intake, and the consumption of heart-healthy fats, more grains and nuts, and light consumption of alcohol (but dont start if not already drinking). Dr. Okereke emphasizes the importance of keeping physically and mentally active and to ensure we get adequate sleep, rest and hydration. Studies show that we promote wellbeing for mood and healthy aging if we increase our physical activity. According to Dr. Okereke, walking can actually be sufficient physical activity if we spend 30 minutes a day walking at a moderate or brisk pace at least three times/week. So, how do we stay mentally active? In a recent Harvard Medical School publication, the authors asserted that: Challenging your brain with mental exercise is believed to activate processes that help maintain individual brain cells and stimulate communication among them. Many people have jobs that keep them mentally active, but pursuing a hobby or learning a new skill can function the same way. Read; join a book group; play chess or bridge; write your life story; do crossword or jigsaw puzzles; take a class; pursue music or art; design a new garden layout. At work, propose or volunteer for a project that involves a skill you don't usually use. Building and preserving brain connections is an ongoing process, so make lifelong learning a priority. What if we find that we or a loved one are showing signs of confusion or memory loss? Its not uncommon to make excuses for the cognitive symptoms or to deny that anything is amiss. However, its important we pay attention when we notice worrisome cognitive signs, because there are often other explanations for this memory impairment that may require prompt medical attention, and can be quite treatable. We know how disheartening and physically taxing AD care can be on the entire family. Fortunately, our community offers many resources that will help patients and their families to find a sensitive, dignified means to shore up their emotional and physical reserves. There are many physicians and allied medical experts in our communities who are knowledgeable in the diagnosis and management of AD and other forms of dementia. The national Alzheimers Association has a 24/7 helpline: 1-800-272-3900, and has an active chapter in Southeast Florida. (There is an office in West Palm Beach 561-967-0047). In addition, there are a multitude of online support services and groups. Family members might benefit from contacting The Family Caregiver Alliance or the Well Spouse Association. linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com

their own niche programming through the expanding universe of streaming devices and apps such as Netflix, Hulu Live and Sling TV a fairly typical three-piece combo, each offering its own programming for a monthly charge. In a decision to go with traditional pay TV, streaming, or both, its hard to factor in all the bundles, services, specials, add ons, and freebies without going cross-eyed. But the main considerations include what you want or need to watch, what devices you plan to watch it on, and the total price tag. Cord cutting is not an apples-to-apples comparison, either in terms of price or programming, so it requires a little research. The good news is that if you do want to cut the cord, its not that hard, and in this edition we tell you how. You may be able to save some cash while getting more shows you like and fewer channels that you never or rarely watch. People who want to cut the cord on cable frequently complain of high costs and poor service, said Greg Blair, president of Community TV Sales and Service in Palm Beach Gardens. He points out to his customers that if they do that, theyll still need some kind of internet service to stream the shows. Because of the bundling packages of these providers, their cost of the standalone internet package increases, he said. It really calms them down and makes them rethink (cutting the cord). Many people also automatically get cable as part of homeowners association or rental fees. The older customers, they are more mainstream, theyre sticking with their cable provider, but theyre also most of them live in these gated communities where they have some form of a cable package, he said. For others, switching could save them money. An average cable or satellite service costs a little more than $100, said Jim Willcox, senior electronics editor at Consumer Reports. Many pay more than that. So there is room to play around with the streaming subscriptions you want to become a cord cutter. Most also offer free monthly trials. Clearly what people are paying for a traditional pay TV package is helping fuel the cord-cutting movement, Mr. Willcox said. Last September, the research firm eMarketer estimated the traditional pay TV audience of 196.3 million U.S. adults will have shrunk by close to 10 percent between 2016 and 2021 due to cord cutters and a growing number of cord nevers. The firm says there were 22.2 million cord cutte rs ages 18 and older in 2017, a 33 percent jump over 2016, and 34.4 million cord nevers. The 55-and-older age group will buy more traditional pay TV during this time, eMarketer predicts, while all other age groups will continue to shift to streaming services. Fort Myers resident Olena Vynohradska, 21, said she and her boyfriend had cable TV for a few months. But then I just kind of never used it because a lot of TV channels were blocked and I had to pay extra money for it, she said. All the channels I was interested in I had to pay extra money for them so I was like, come on. She uses her phone, iPad, as well as a TV at home along with a Netflix subscription to watch a variety of programs, including Ukrainian television channels (she immigrated here from Russia). Naples resident Sigrid Mucci, 75, has a Comcast internet and cable subscription, which she uses primarily to watch CNN and other news, as well as Netflix, which is included in the bundle. But she doesnt have any desire to watch shows on smaller devices. I like sitting down, having a glass of wine, she said. I cant imagine watching a movie on my phone. Dishs Sling TV a streaming alternative to basic cable includes 50-plus channels such as CNN, ESPN, Comedy Central and AMC for $40. A package with 25-plus channels costs $20. How-CORDFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOOptions for watching your favorite shows abound, with many cutting the cord to traditional cable and satellite options and choosing to stream specific channels, sometimes cutting costs. Because of the bundling packages of these providers, their cost of the stand-alone internet package increases ... It really calms them down and makes them rethink (cutting the cord).

ever, that cost can quickly grow by subscribing to apps with popular streaming shows such as Netflix to get the latest Stranger Things or HBO Now to watch Game of Thrones. And to access such apps on your TV at home youll need a smart TV (most new ones are) or a device such as Apple TV or a Roku streaming player that plugs in to it. Some people also connect their laptop directly to their TV. MoffettNathanson Research estimated that subscribers to internet television replacement apps such as Sling by far the most popular grew from 683,000 subscribers in 2015 to 4.6 million in 2017. Besides Sling, other internet TV apps include Googles YouTube TV, Hulu Live, Sony PlayStation Vue and AT&Ts DirectTV Now. Streaming channels, though, have been known to be less reliable than cable during peak periods such as during a Game of Thrones premiere or the Super Bowl, Mr. Willcox said, with trouble handling all the traffic. On the other hand, streaming is becoming more and more reliable and more niche as well, he added. You like horror shows? Theres Shudder. British television? Acorn TV. What about indie films? Try FilmStruck. And there are many free streaming services that offer television and movies, though they include adds. (Consumer Reports) is in favor of consumers having a lot more choices and thats what were seeing and theres a lot of experimentation going on right now, electronics editor Mr. Willcox said. Some of the services may not stick around, they may morph into other things. The great thing is, were seeing a lot more niche targeted services. If you do have more niche taste or dont want the all-you-can-eat buffet that traditional cable service has always provided, then you can probably save money. Cape Coral resident Gigi Fleuristal, 21, cut her cable service and said she saves money using a Roku streaming device to access apps on her TV including Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. I feel like its great, its better than cable, honestly, she said. Her favorite shows, of which there are many, include Greys Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries, Shameless, the original Big Mouth and 3 Reasons Why. Sylvia M. Chan-Olmsted, a University of Florida professor and director of media consumer research, said she canceled her own traditional pay TV service in favor of streaming apps including Netflix and Amazon. And I dont feel like I miss it at all, she said. One of the common weaknesses of streaming programming is live sports, she added, although that may soon change. And in addition to cost considerations and control over what viewers are watching, streaming services are producing some of the highest quality and most popular television shows. All the big-time drama, the shows people talk about, are they network shows or are they shows on Netflix, HBO and Hulu? she said. Sports, thats different. But when we talk about Game of Thrones, big profile all those are streaming shows. Steve Orlando, a media strategist and adjunct lecturer at UF, teaches an undergraduate survey course with 275 students (his live studio audience) called Mass Media and You. During a section on television and cable history, he asks for a show of hands: How many watch network TV on a real television? And its usually less than half a dozen actually still watch network TV on an actual television, he said. The heyday of network television lasted from roughly the 1950s through the mid-1990s. He feels its programs continue to be somewhat bland compared to streaming shows. There was a lot of terrific programing, but it was designed and written to capture a broad audience, he said. And so it was written in some ways more generically than the type of TV program you see on streaming today. And theres so much great programing available on the streaming services now. Its really well written, its thoughtful, its often provocative. And you dont see it on network TV today, in my opinion, and I think thats part of whats driving people to the streaming services. Netflixs first big hit, the political drama House of Cards, typifies the kind of quality content Mr. Orlando described and ushered in a new era of streaming TV. That was kind of the birth of binge watching, right? he said. It was for many, including this reporter. It was also a time when TV-show making itself was increasingly looking like a binge activity. Research firms trace the start of the streaming trend to 2010, when only four new original series were distributed by online streaming services, with hundreds appearing through traditional TV. In 2013, the year House of Cards debuted on Netflix, there were 24 new online shows created, FX Networks Research says. In 2017, there were 117 original series distributed exclusively online and another 370 new shows distributed by broadcast, pay cable and basic cable networks. MoffettNathanson Research reported on March 1 that cord cutting continues to accelerate. The trend it says began eight years ago sa w the most cutters ever in the last quarter of 2017, when close to 500,000 customers dropped traditional pay TV service. The firm estimates 13.5 million households in the U.S. have cut the cord while 83 million still have it intact. Clearly what people are paying for a traditional pay TV package is helping fuel the cord cutting movement. Jim Willcox, senior electronics editor at Consumer Reports How to cut the cord on cable or satellite TVJames Nelson is a retired electrical engineer and instructor for the Florida Gulf Coast University Renaissance Academy, its continuing education branch that caters to adults and retirees, at Herald Court Centre in Punta Gorda. He teaches a four-hour course called Streaming Internet, TV, and Movies. Mr. Nelson shared some of the tips and advice that his students have used to cut the cord. He explains to them that their new program lineup after cutting the cord will look different and probably have fewer total channels. But for some of his students those channels were going to waste anyway. Its not a one for one replacement, he said. Its not, Im going to save all this money and its going to look and feel the same as my cable. In some ways its a better feel than cable and in some ways there are some limitations. Sports programs, for instance, are often cited as lacking in streaming channels. On the other hand, there are also some niche programs you cant get any way except with streaming.Aside from watching on a phone, computer or pad, there are numerous devices used to get access to streaming apps on your TV at home. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, and Roku are among them. They all plug into your TVs HDMI input. Most new TVs (smart TVs) also have some capabilities built in, though Mr. Nelson prefers a separate device that he nds offers greater options and ease of use. Net ix, Hulu Live, HBO Now, Amazon Prime, Sling TV the list is long and growing, each offering unique programming. For most, you need to pay for relatively cheap monthly subscriptions, but they can add up quickly. One of the advantages is that many offer free sign-up periods to test them out. And you pay on a monthly basis instead of signing a contract so its easy to drop and switch anytime. On average, consumers pay upwards of $100 per month for cable TV, which leaves plenty of room to play with in your budget. If you have cable TV now, Mr. Nelson suggests to students: Make a list of the stations you would watch now and that you would want to watch and then go on the web and Google all these different services, and see which ones match up with your taste.Here are four things you need to be a cord cutter:Subscriptions to streaming apps S 3 4 1An internet connection To start, you probably need to have some kind of broadband service through Comcast/X nity or CenturyLink which allows you to stream in the rst place. But its possible to sever even that connection by using the Wi-Fi signal from your phone or a device that creates a hotspot. In that case you would need to upgrade to a plan, for instance with AT&T, that allows you to use unlimited data. (I have such a plan, which costs about $100 per month, and overall save a small amount of money by not paying for my former Comcast internet service). Mr. Nelson said the cellular hotspots typically put out about 50 megabits, comparable to what many now have from their cable companies. However, it might work best for singles, those who have only one TV at home, or do not have especially heavy streaming needs. The Wi-Fi in your portable hotspot is not as powerful and (does not) radiate quite as far through your residence as one of these (cable) modems, but it does pretty good, he said. 2A streaming device Your local stations such as NBC and ABC may not be available through a streaming service. One exception is CBS, with a local channel available on a streaming subscription. But many can get these channels by buying a new TV antenna or even using a pair of old rabbit ears. Port Charlotte resident Alice Martin, 63, found that she can get 15 channels with her antenna. She took Mr. Nelsons course three times, she said, afraid at rst of the idea of nally cutting her cable TV service, a basic Comcast package. In January they raised the rate, and that was the last straw. Along with local channels captured with her antenna, and internet service from CenturyLink, she uses a Samsung smart TV as her device to get her subscriptions to Hulu and Net ix, and plans to sign up for the CBS app as well. I paid someone to hook it up for me and Ive been streaming ever since, she said. I absolutely love it. Ms. Martin said that she doesnt miss any of the channels on her old cable service. Her favorite shows include Blue Bloods, a police drama, and old episodes of The Twilight Zone. Recently, she binge-watched the Net ix historical drama The Crown for an entire weekend.

BEHIND THE WHEELCarmakers, dealers will likely find a way around tariffsThe world of automobiles feels like its in trouble or at least its looking like its getting more expensive. With additional taxes looming on steel, foreign cars or even ones built elsewhere in North America, theres a sense we are on a collision course with hard times. But will it ever really reach the consumer level? Tariffs are supposed to encourage guiding products into desired channels but in the case of automobiles, the industry is so adaptive we might never fully feel the pinch of changing production costs. One of the most interesting stories of how vehicles get around a problem starts with poultry. The 1963 Chicken Tax added a hefty 25 percent tariff to small commercial vehicles and trucks imported to the U.S. This was in response to new duties imposed on U.S. chicken exports by (West) Germany. It instantly rendered the small Volkswagen pickups noncompetitive on our shores. There was just no way for VW to get them into the U.S. and still be profitable. However, as the tax stayed in effect, it created a hole in the compact truck market. Companies like Toyota and Datsun specialize in these small vehicles. They succeeded where Volkswagen couldnt. In the 1970s they got around the Chicken Tax by importing the assembled truck without beds. This reduced the duty if they stamped and bolted the rear steel in the U.S. Manufacturers are still getting around the Chicken Tax in modern times. In fact, while this was initially intended to protect U.S. companies, Ford is one of the most recent to work through a loophole. For many years, its small Transit Connect cargo van would arrive from Turkey classified as a passenger vehicle because of rear windows and back seats. The extra metal, glass and fabric were promptly removed and the van was then sent to dealerships as a commercial vehicle. It was deemed cheaper for them to instantly recycle large and costly components rather than pay the high tax. This longstanding roadblock verifies a point. If it gets too expensive to manufacture cars in the U.S. with imported steel, and even if its too expensive to import fully assembled vehicles, the automobile manufacturers will find a way. They have proven they can drive a truckload of new cars through any small loophole. If tariffs are imposed and extra costs incurred, it will certainly be a problem for the automobile producers. But with the right presentation, consumers might not feel it as much. Rarely do people walk into a dealership anymore and pay for a car in-full. Financing is one of the more lucrative sides of the car business. It has been pushed by car companies, banks and dealerships for long enough that people view a car purchase in payments instead of total price. Its also one of the reasons why leasing is more popular than ever. The willingness to take on more personal debt is rarely seen as a smart move, but right now that is exactly the trend in automobile purchases. If a vehicle becomes more expensive to produce, it can be passed on to buyers with more payments instead of higher ones. Thus, while its not financially healthy, some consumers might not feel the pinch of more expensive cars. Their monthly payment hasnt changed the time is just now extended. Even selling a car has changed. The internet allows easy price shopping on a nationwide level, and this has caused dealers to dive deeper into other profit centers. While there is less money to be made in new cars today, theyve become a larger catalyst for finance and long-term service. In fact, a dealers service department has always been a profit center, but now that department often works even closer with sales. Theres potential for a large profit in a major service. However, if a customer isnt going to invest in their old car, the dealership is also ready to show how one overhaul bill covers a few months of payments on a new vehicle. So even in a world of higher tariffs, the car companies find loopholes, the consumers (on the whole) just want the right monthly payment, and the dealers are always ready to finance. Its not an ideal situation, but it also is not a recipe for a massive upheaval. This column is not taking a side on trade policy or promoting a political agenda. After all, everything from environmental concerns to ridesharing can upset the industry, too. And exploiting loopholes and more financing are not something to encourage. This is just a small sample to highlight it takes more than trends and taxes to divert automobiles out of our hands. Tougher times might be immediately ahead, but theres over a century of history that tells us that cars find a way to survive. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com In the 1970s, Toyota and Datsun got around a high tax imposed on Germany by importing small VW trucks without the beds, then adding them in the U.S.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2018 | A21WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM MONEY & INVESTINGA few banks are slowly increasing interest rates for consumersIf you are a regular reader of this column, or a follower of financial news in general, you know that interest rates are on the rise. This is true from the shortest-term overnight Federal Reserve funds rate, which has increased from effectively zero to 1.5 percent, to the 30-year treasury rate, which has risen by more than 1 percent. Yet looking at the interest rate most large banks are paying for depositors, you would think that rates havent moved at all. Many banks are still paying less than .1 percent on checking/savings accounts and less than 1 percent on certificate of deposit rates. Why arent banks paying higher rates and what can a consumer do about it? The primary reason that banks arent paying higher rates is that they simply dont need to. After the financial crisis and resulting stock market crash earlier this decade, many people became conservative with their money and parked it in safe bank deposits. At the same time, a poor economy and increasing regulation resulted in fewer loans being approved by banks. Banks had a lot of cash and not that many places to use it. They did not need to offer higher rates because they simply didnt need any more deposits. But today things are starting to turn around. The economy is doing better and loan volumes are slowing increasing. In addition, people are once again investing in the stock market and fixed income markets. So some banks are starting to desire more funds to fuel growth. The key is finding the growing banks which offer higher rates. One bank offering a unique higher yielding deposit account is Ally Bank. Up until 2008, this was General Motors Acceptance Corp., the entity that financed customer cars for the giant automaker. But in 2006, GM sold this business and in 2009 it was renamed Ally Bank. Today it is the 18th largest bank in the country with over $167 billion in assets. Ally offers a Raise Your Rate CD that you may have seen on a TV commercial. Today, this product offers a 2 percent return, not a bad number in todays environment. But even better ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com CYBERSECURITY ADVANCES Identity Fraud Institute set to host first Organizational Privacy SummitBY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.com THE IDENTITY FRAUD INSTITUTE AT HODGES University is just over 2 years old, yet its impact is already being felt on a national level. Director Carrie Kerskie is aiming for even more influence with the schools inaugural Organizational Privacy Summit to be held at the Hilton Naples from April 30 through May 2. The upcoming summit features a whos who of national names in the cybersecurity realm, including keynote speaker Brian Krebs, SEE SECURITY, A22 SEE MONEY, A22
is that if rates rise, you have the option of increasing your rate. For the twoyear CD, you get one option and for the four-year rate you get two options. That means during the next four years, you can call the bank two times and simply reset your CD rate to the prevailing market rate at that time. Not a bad option to have in todays rising rate environment. Another bank, Synchrony Bank, also offers a great interest rate. Synchrony Bank was previously part of GE Financial but now operates as its own entity. This bank offers a high yield savings account paying 1.55 percent. There is no minimum deposit or service fee and you can link it to an account in your local bank to easily transfer funds back and forth. And there are other, smaller banks, like DollarSavingsDirect, which offer savings rates as high as 1.8 percent. Many people are concerned about putting their money in a bank that is not local or potentially not as financially sound as a national name brand bank, but they shouldnt be. All of these saving and CD accounts are FDIC insured up to $250,000 per account so customers can feel comfortable that their money is protected by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. A22 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY a longtime Washington Post investigative reporter-turned cyber-detective. Hes earned international acclaim (and scrutiny from those hes vanquished) for unearthing myriad nefarious activities on the dark web and shedding light on the many cybercentric issues of the day on his blog, www. KrebsOnSecurity. com. Mr. Krebs is credited with breaking the story on the Target data breach that affected as many as 40 million credit card accounts in late 2013. He has made it his passion to infiltrate the dark web, Ms. Kerskie said of her keynote speakers drive. He bridges the gap between cybersecurity and the victims perspective. The Organizational Privacy Summits purpose is to arm C-level executives and managers of risk, compliance, governance, cybersecurity, human resources, IT and networks with the tools they need to avoid common occurrences of data breach within their walls. The goal is to bring the human factor back into the conversation, Ms. Kerskie said. Everyone thinks its all about cybersecurity and throwing tech at the problem. But if you look at (many) past data breaches, there was a human element to it. Someone clicked on a link there was a human factor. The summit will host a variety of nationally known cybersecurity experts, covering topics from current threats and opportunities to mitigating these threats from all perspectives. A lot of data breaches have been caused by the actions of organizations and their employees, Ms. Kerskie said. Thats why we created this summit. From the Identity Fraud Institutes perspective, Ms. Kerskie says its focus is twofold: victim assistance and education. In just a couple of years, the institute has helped a number of victims navigate through nasty cases of identity theft, fraudulent transactions or data breaches. Through each case, the institutes knowledge of common cyber issues increases. Ms. Kerskie has identified several key patterns that informed her speaker selection for the summit. There are certain policies that industries are rolling out, thinking people will buy into them right away, she said. If people dont understand the why, they wont take advantage of it theres a percentage of the population that doesnt want any part of (online accounts). Some dont even own a computer. Ms. Kerskie cited two-factor authentication as just one of many mainstream examples of a great security addition and many people dont understand how it helps. People dont know what it is. These companies are trying to help, but they need to explain the why. The International Association of Privacy Professionals is one of the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy communities. It acts as a resource for those who want to develop and advance their careers by helping their organizations successfully manage these risks and protect their data. Each year the IAPP provides a list of industryapproved events for Continuing Personal Education credits. In 2018 there have been approved events in New York, London, San Francisco and Toronto, among other major destinations. The summit in Naples made the list, too. For us to be able to get our event approved was phenomenal, Ms. Kerskie said of the credibility booster. They are internationally known for their certification program. We were very pleased, to say the least. The way Ms. Kerskie has designed the summit, to target business people and managers. I think thats great, said Donald Rebovich, Ph.D. and professor at Utica College. He leads the Center for Identity Management and Information Protection at Utica and is slated to speak at the summit about data breaches and unintentional insider threats. Ill talk about some of the big breaches that have taken place recently that were reported in the media, Dr. Rebovich said. Some of these we know how the breach occurred, but there are others that we dont, and others we dont know how many people have their sensitive information exposed. Ms. Kerskie cited several other prominent topics to be covered, including the little-known cyber liability insurance, which is designed to protect businesses from risks relating to information technology activities and infrastructure. Theres a big mystique around it. What does it do, what does it cover? she said. The goal is to have around 100 business professionals attend the summit, in a more intimate setting where the executives will have the chance to interact with some of the authorities in cybersecurity. Underlying each speaker, talking point and the event itself is the ultimate goal of simply helping people avoid trapping themselves into cyber-related issues. Its more than just tech, cybersecurity, legal compliance; you have to look at it from a holistic perspective, Ms. Kerskie said of the multifaceted issues companies face on a daily basis. What are the people you serve facing? If they do become a victim, what are your procedures? When someone is a victim and theyre getting stonewalled by the businesses that enabled the bad guy to do what they do were trying to help them.

Righteous Brothers coming to Kravis BY STEVEN J. SMITH ssmith@ oridaweekly.comWith a name like Bill Medley, it seems this Righteous Brother was destined to have a career making music and singing songs. People ask me if thats my real name, Mr. Medley laughed. I jokingly tell them my original name is Tune. And I changed it from Tune to Medley. Medleys my name and musics my game. Mr. Medley, 77, will join forces with his new singing partner, Bucky Heard, to bring this latest incarnation of the Righteous Brothers to the Kravis Center on March 18 for one show only. The two will plumb the depths of the Righteous Brothers canon, performing such classics as Youve Lost That Lovin Feelin, Ebb Tide, Soul and Inspiration, Rock and Roll Heaven, The Time of My Life and Unchained Melody, to name a few. Mr. Heard replaced Mr. Medleys original partner, Bobby Hatfield, who died in 2003. Bobby and I were raised in Orange County, California, Mr. Medley said. We were in a group together called The Paramours. There was a military base there called El Toro Marine Base. A lot of the black Marines heard there were these two white guys singing rhythm and blues, so they came to the nightclub to hear us. Now, if you had a great looking car, theyd say, What a righteous looking car, meaning good. If they liked you as a friend, theyd call you brother. When these guys saw us coming to play, theyd say, How ya doin, righteous brother? Which meant good friend.

COLLECTORS CORNER Ah, Paris. I came, I saw and I learned a thing or two scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org If there is one thing that makes me marvel, it is this: Our world keeps getting smaller. I thought about that at the end of a grueling day of flying 2 hours from Paris to Lisbon, followed by 9 hours in the air from Lisbon to Miami. That final leg received my prize for Longest Flight Ever. But it was a blink compared to what our forebears faced as they embarked on transatlantic tours back in the day. Even in my lifetime, air travel was a novelty for some folks. For many, travel to Europe meant boarding a ship to head across the pond. I remember Mr. and Mrs. Turschwell, who owned an elegant antiques shop at the Collier Arcade in downtown Fort Myers, took buying trips to Europe each summer a map in the window of their shop charted their travels and they would return with glittering crystal, sparkling silver, fine porcelain and extravagant pieces of furniture. Oh, the mighty dollar bought so much more in those days. During my sojourn in Paris, I did a little scouting for treasures, finding much to see in a wonderful place near the Eiffel Tower called Le Village Suisse (78 Avenue de Suffern, 75015), literally The Swiss Village. Over here, we would call it an antiques mall. The collection of small shops and galleries was filled with treasures that would have been right at home in Turschwells or even in my house. Lots of contemporary and traditional art, plus opaline glass, Asian antiques and such were on display. I would expect to see those in Florida. But I also saw plenty of wall-size antique tapestries that one would not necessarily see in South Florida, save one of the big annual antiques fairs that come to the Palm Beaches, Naples or Miami. The next day, I strolled Le Village Saint-Paul, on the right bank of the Seine, in the Marais neighborhood. Unlike Le Village Suisse, which is in late 20th-century buildings, the shops of Le Village Saint-Paul are in buildings that are older than much of the merchandise. Winding cobblestone paths and courtyards lead to shops crammed with everything from the exquisite (silver, crystal, paintings and china) to the funky (vintage vinyl and used clothing competed for attention in one shop). There was much I could have afforded, but nothing moved me to make a purchase, and thats OK. You dont have to buy every time. Its enough to have the experience of seeing some of these treasures in their original home. And sometimes, the best treasures are memories. Bought: F inders Keepers Estate Bu yers Thrift Store, 1228 Hypoluxo Road, Lantana; 561-3602525. Paid: $7. The Skinny: I remember seeing tons and tons of Staffordshire pottery and porcelain in antiques shops when I was coming of age in the 1970s. Dealers could not get enough of the 19th-century English figurines that depicted domestic scenes, as well as sheep, dogs and other animals a pair of spaniels was among the first of the figures I collected some 40 years ago. Ive since learned that my dogs were made in the 20th century theyre marked Staffordshire; earlier pieces were unmarked. But this covered dish in the shape of a hen on a nest dates from the second half of the 19th century. It bears no markings, other than a number. Its design is simple many of these can be elaborately painted but the painting on this one is detailed. There was a time when a piece such as this might have fetched several hundred dollars at a good antiques shop or show. Now, most similar ones I see online sell in the $100 range that doesnt matter to me, because its whimsical and timeless, and it takes me back to my early days of collecting. THE FIND:A Staffordshire hen on a nestSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Staffordshire hen on a nest covered dish dates from the second half of the 19th century. It measures about 9 inches long, from beak to tail.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 sional sculptures and were beautifully adorned. As we walked into the gallery, my granddaughters eyes widened in wonder at a richly colored elaborate gown with its floor-length full skirt, wide hips and long waist. Adjacent was the Peter Paul Rubens oil painting, Portrait of Charlotte-Marguerite de Montmorency, Princess of Cond, from circa 1610. Isabelle de Borchgrave was commissioned to create a gown inspired by the painting in the Frick Art and Historical Center who then loaned the original painting to be displayed with the dress. The Rubens is one of several paintings shown with the dresses. Madame de Borchgrave does not copy the originals exactly but creates her interpretation of them. The viewer must look closely, however, to observe the differences. For instance, on the Elizabeth I court dress, 2001, wild pigs, squirrels, flowers and fruit have replaced sea monsters, snakes and exotic flowers. Many of the outfits have delicate lace collars and cuffs, jewelry and shoes, all created from paper. The sheen of satin, the transparency of voile, the matte finish of cotton all are from paper intended to trick the eye (tromp loeil in French). The illusion continues with the patterning painted on the paper to imitate fabric, along with naturally falling folds in the dresses. The mannequins heads are adorned with wigs and hair, crowns and jewelry, also made from paper. The artistry began when she was just a young child. While on a beach in France, she drew in the sand and was observed by Picasso who pranced near her with his lover Francoise Gilot. Isabelles parents were active in the Brussels cultural community and encouraged her artful activities even when she decided at 14 to quit school to study art at the Centre des Arts Decoratifs and the Acadmie Royale des Beaux Arts. At 17, she launched her career with an exhibition of her work, which sold out immediately. From the proceeds, she remodeled an attic apartment as her studio and supported herself making everything from Christmas cards and invitations to designing china patterns and textile designs. She also taught art classes to children which undoubtedly brought parents that saw and purchased her art. One must wonder if the children may have been the inspiration for the dresses. After all her efforts, she opened a boutique in 1975 from which she sold the dresses, art and home accessories traversing into the area of interior design. However, in 1994, she visited the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Inspired, she returned to making paper dresses in partnership with Rita Brown, an expert costumer and pattern maker for theatrical productions. While Rita cut patterns, Isabelle experimented with different techniques, paints and varnishes to imitate the fabrics. Sometimes Isabelle created the paintings first and then Rita cut the shapes; other times, vice versa. Iridescent watercolor was mixed with acrylic paint for the sheen of Chinese silk; a wavy comb was used to imitate moir; it was a grand experiment, a flurry of activity and drew on all the experience of Isabelles art training as a painter and Ritas in-depth knowledge of period dress. The result? The series Papiers la Mode 300 years of fashion history beginning with Queen Elizabeth I and culminating with the 1920s and Coco Chanel. In the Four Arts lower gallery, brightly colored costumes pay homage to Les Ballets Russes that was led by Sergei Diaghilev from 1909 to 1929. His costumes were created from collaborations with contemporary artists of the time such as Matisse, Picasso, de Chirico and Cocteau. Early in this century, Madame de Borchgrave was given the opportunity to participate in an exhibition inspired by the art of Mariano Fortuny in his Venice, Italy, palazzo. Several of the gowns are displayed at the Four Arts exhibition illustrating rich, velvety fabric and gold embellishments. As a lover of Italy, she spent many hours in the Uffizi Museum in Florence studying the paintings of the Italian Renaissance masters. From Botticellis Primavera, she has interpreted two figures, dresses adorned with flowers, that seem to be ready to skip into the room bringing the painting to life. In the room is Madame de Borchgraves series Splendor of the Medici which was inspired by her visit to Palazzo Medici Riccardi that has paintings from the mid-15th century. Transporting the viewer into the worlds shown in the paintings is the artists goal. In the exhibitions book, she says, Those paintings made me dream. When I decided to do the series, I thought I could make other people dream, too. I am not a dressmaker like Chanel or Dior. My way to do them is like a painting. It is a question of expressing how you feel in front of the painting. In one dress alone, there are more than 4,000 pearls created from paper. The artist worked with ten studio assistants for more than a year to create the series. Earlier that day, when we entered the exhibition, I asked my five-year-old granddaughter to pick out her favorite dress. She selected the one worn by Bianca de Medici, a child about her age. As we strolled through the galleries, pointing out interesting aspects of the outfits, discussing colors and patterns, she seemed awestruck and inspired. Upon leaving, she was thrilled that I purchased the exhibitions book and clutched it possessively. I borrowed it back that evening and reviewed it with pleasure as it shows the artists process and gives insight into her life and philosophy. Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper is an inspirational and educational exhibit from multiple perspectives historical and artistic and I was grateful to also be able to see it through the eyes of a child.

The Righteous Brothers soon caught producer Phil Spectors attention, and he signed them to record what would become one of the most played songs in the history of American radio the Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil classic Youve Lost That Lovin Feelin. A string of hits followed until 1968, when Messrs. Medley and Hatfield agreed to part ways to pursue solo efforts. Mr. Medley soon scored with top 10 hits Peace, Brother, Peace and Brown-eyed Woman. In 1974, the two reunited and within a few weeks had yet another hit with Rock and Roll Heaven. From that point until Mr. Hatfields death in 2003 just after the pair was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the Righteous Brothers never stopped performing to packed crowds. Weve had some pretty good luck with our songs winding up on the soundtracks of movies, Mr. Medley said. You know, Lovin Feeling in Top Gun, Unchained Melody in Ghost and Time of My Life in Dirty Dancing. Id like to say its because of us, but it aint. I guess these songs work so well for those movies because theres an emotional pull in them and they just fit so well. Movies can turn a good song into a great song, because they make a song more relatable. Mr. Medley joined forces with Mr. Heard three years ago for a Righteous Brothers redux, even though the two had been friends for many years before that. I was a little reluctant about starting up the Righteous Brothers again, but some close friends were telling me people wanted to hear that music, he said. I was in Branson, Missouri and went in to see Bucky. He was doing some Journey songs and I didnt know he could do that stuff. He just knocked me out. So I asked him, What do you think about reviving the Righteous Brothers with me? He said he was fine with that. Its worked out unbelievably well. Buckys the best partner in the world. Hes a great singer and a great guy. And I couldnt be happier teaming up with him. Their aim is to perform all of the Righteous Brothers hits, rather than focus on any new songs. Its a genuine Righteous Brothers show, he said. You cant replace Bobby Hatfield, but Bucky is doing such a phenomenal job of filling in. We do all the hits and they sound like the hits. We dont try to change them up or make them any hipper. We try to do what the audience is there to hear. And by the end, we think the audience will feel they got what they expected. And a little more.

Forge Books. 332 pages. Hardcover, $25.99. Ward Larsens new futuristic thriller has everything going for it: a great premise, suspenseful plotting, vivid sensory detail, fine characters and a highly engaging narrative style. The possible future it explores seems just over the horizon of todays digital and medical technologies. Young, handsome Trey DeBolt works as a Coast Guard rescue swimmer in Alaska. He survives a helicopter crash only to find out he has been declared dead. And hes not the man he used to be. He is much, much more. Once recovering consciousness, Trey finds himself in a remote cabin along the Maine cost under the supervision of a nurse. Slowly, as he recovers physically, he discovers he has special abilities that will take him a while to understand and control. It will take him even longer to discover why he has them and what his reincarnation means. In the meantime, the nurse is assassinated and her cabin blown up. Trey has been part of a clandestine, perhaps illegal, government experiment that wasnt supposed to succeed. Rewired by a mad genius doctor and put under the direction of a renegade army general, he is now an important component in the wired and wireless world through which data flows. If the title hadnt been taken some years back for a Michael Crichton novel and the movie based on it, he could be Terminal Man. Indeed, the two novels have more than a little in common regarding new technologies and the battle for control over them. Its enough that Trey can tap into any source of digital information, finding what he needs to solve any problem. He sends out a question and albeit sometimes with a bit of delay he receives answers. The receiving instrument for Treys digital processing is a tiny screen embedded in his eye that allows him to scan images and text from almost any source. As one might expect, Mr. Larsen creates a female interest for his protagonist. When Coast Guard investigator Shannon Lund discovers signs that Trey might still be alive, she feels responsible for exploring this possibility. And she is seriously attracted to Trey. Soon, both characters are in the crosshairs of government assassins. They know too much, and Treys relatively ungoverned use of his developing skills is a threat. There are some hints (or maybe its only my hope) that further developments in this relationship may unfold in a sequel. Indeed, perhaps Mr. Larsen has a new series is in the making. Trey, the good guy outcome of Dr. Patels META experiment, has been given the codename Bravo. Much of the high action in Cutting Edge stems from his confrontations with his nemesis, a giant of a man code-named Delta, who has been similarly programmed. Delta seems to have lost whatever moral dimension he may have once had. Other candidates for super-skill installations did not survive. The strength of Mr. Larsens novel comes from his commitment to enhancing the premises probability in every possible way. This includes making Treys adaptation to his new capacities, along with his meaningful contemplation about their proper use, addictively credible. It is also extremely frightening. The authors evocation of settings complements all the other aspects of his narrative. Whether readers are taken to seaside Maine, Kodiak, Alaska, or various sections of Vienna, Austria, Mr. Larsen handles the interface between place, action and character with smooth efficiency. About the authorWard Larsen is a USA Today bestselling author, four-time winner of the Florida Book Award and a Macavity Award nominee. His first thriller, The Perfect Assassin, is being adapted into a major motion picture by Amber Entertainment and SND/M6 Films. A former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, Mr. Larsen flew 22 missions in Operation Desert Storm. He has served as a federal law enforcement officer and an airline captain, and he is a trained aircraft accident investigator. He lives in the Sarasota area. His website, www. wardlarsen.com, has an engaging and informative posting about how he developed his latest book.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11 ANTIQUESTrompe-loeil is a popular art theme today BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Its important to keep up with what is changing in the world of art and collecting. Fool-the-eye (trompe-loeil) is a popular theme in a new type of art. Today, copies of machines, pieces of buildings, a huge hanging light bulb or an enlarged comic strip or stamp pad are displayed as outdoor statues or large indoor sculptures. Recently, a wood carving by Japanese artist Fumio Yoshimura (1926-2002) was offered by Auction Team Breker, a German gallery, in an online auction that reached the United States and most other large countries. It looks like a small Singer treadle sewing machine made in the early 1900s. The carved machine has a Singer plaque, bobbins, fretwork, treadle, drive-belt and wheel on a base with drawer fronts, all made of linden wood. It is made as a sculpture to place in a prominent spot in the house. The artist has made other utilitarian items like typewriters, motorbikes and other mechanical objects that were created full-size. He never depicted people. Its a new type of art; however, the sewing machine didnt sell. Q: Are all true Sabino pieces signed and or marked? A: Sabino glass was designed by Marius Ernest Sabino and made in Paris beginning in the 1920s. Production stopped during World War II and resumed in the 1960s. The factory, molds, designs and formulas were bought by Sabinos American agent in 1978. It is now Sabino Crystal Co., and its headquarters is in Houston. The glass still is made in France. It seems that all Sabino glass is marked either with an etched or molded mark. Early glass marked Sabino Paris was made for the French market. The mark also has been used on larger pieces. Early glass made for export was marked Sabino France. Marks found on cheaper glass include Verart and Vernox. Q: How can I obtain an appraiser and sell an aviation relic? I have a framed piece of original fabric from the Fokker D-VII U.10. The print states its the second in a series of relics from the National Air and Space Museum. A: You have a limited-edition print that is part of the National Air and Space Museums Aviation Relic Series. Each print contains a 2-inch square of fabric from a historical aircraft in the museums collection. The fabric was removed and replaced when the airplanes were being restored in the 1970s and early 1980s. The Fokker D-VII was a German plane flown during World War I. The pilot, Heinz von Beaulieu-Marconnay, landed the plane on an American airstrip in France on Nov. 9, 1918, two days before the armistice was signed. Von Beaulieu-Marconnay was in the cavalry before he became a pilot. The 3-foot-high U-10 painted on the side of the plane stands for Tenth Uhlans, his former cavalry unit. The museum gift shop might be able to tell you when this print was issued and what it originally cost. Another print from this series sold at auction recently for $270. Q: Ive got a Shelley butter dish with a number stamped on the back that begins with Rd and then 24619. The dish is marked Late Foley Shelley England. Im assuming its at least 100 years old. Can you tell me how old it is and what its worth? A: Foley China Works started in 1860. Joseph Ball Shelley joined the company in 1862 and Percy Shelley joined the firm in 1881. After a series of name changes, the company became Shelley China in 1910. The name was changed to Shelley Potteries in 1929. The company was sold to Allied English Potteries in 1966, and merged with the Doulton group in 1971. Shelley is no longer being made. The Rd number is the English registry number and indicates the design was registered in 1904. The Late Foley Shelley England mark was used from 1910-1916, so your dish was made during that period. The value of your butter dish is under $40. Q: I bought a Blair Camera Co. Folding Hawk-Eye No. 3, Model No. 1 at a tag sale. The case is wood. I cant find any information about it. Do you have any information, including its value? A: Thomas Henry Blair, a Canadian immigrant, developed several early cameras and photography systems. He founded the Blair Tourograph Co. in Connecticut in 1878. The tourograph was a portable camera that used a wet plate to take and develop the picture. Later, it used dry plates. The company moved to Boston in 1881, and its name became the Blair Tourograph & Dry Plate Co. It became the Blair Camera Co. in 1886. Blair made cameras that used rolls of film in 1888. Blair bought the Boston Camera Co., which made Hawk-Eye cameras, in 1890. Eastman Kodak Co. bought the Blair Camera Co. in 1899, and it was moved to Rochester, New York. The Hawk-Eye No. 3, Model No. 1 originally sold for $27.50, which is worth almost $700 today. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

LATEST FILMSThe Hurricane HeistIs it worth $10? NoSometimes you go to a movie that looks as spectacularly bad as The Hurricane Heist because you hope with foolish optimism that itll be just your kind of trash. Then you watch it and are reminded most trash is not the good kind. What you hoped would be campy fun is actually a global disaster of a motion picture. Its not even so bad its good, which makes it even worse. Will (Toby Kebbell) is a meteorologist who chases storms in a custom-made truck that he calls The Dominator. His brother, Breeze (Ryan Kwanten), lives in the fictional town of Gulfport, Ala., which is where a Category Five hurricane is heading. Will is one of those characters whose gut tells him the approaching storm is going to be bigger than the experts think. And, of course, he turns out to be correct. Gulfport is also the home of a U.S. Treasury depository that holds $600 million in cash thats about to be shredded. Casey (Maggie Grace) and her partner Perkins (Ralph Ineson) are in charge of ensuring the money is destroyed. Little does Casey know that Perkins and his team are planning to use the storm as a cover to rob the Treasury. Can Casey and the two brothers save the money and themselves as the hurricane barrels through Gulfport? Trust me, youll never really care one way or the other. Gaps of logic and reality abound. Will never uses his windshield wipers in the driving rain. Sasha (Melissa Bolona), one of the robbers, is dressed like shes going to a nightclub. Casey emerges from a fistfight in the finale with fewer facial bruises than she started the fight with. The brothers repeatedly reference a football play that has no significance, even metaphorically. Theres a scene in which Casey is inside the Dominator with the windows closed while Will is on top of a three-story roof. The wind is howling and guns are firing at them. He yells down to her. She hears him perfectly. We roll our eyes. Then there are the winning exchanges of dialog: Casey: Im out of bullets. Will: Howd that happen? Casey: I shot them all. Some of this would be forgivable if the action and effects were stellar, but they are not. Early in the film, Breeze rescues Casey by driving his car into danger and opening the door for her to get in. Not more than five minutes later, Will rescues her the exact same way. No high marks for originality here. The rest of the action and effects are adequate but unimpressive, save for one scene in which hubcaps are used as weapons. Thats pretty cool. For the record, please dont interpret my description of The Hurricane Heist as trash as dismissively disparaging. Director Rob Cohen knows what kind of movie this is nobodys going for Oscars here. And just because a film is trash doesnt mean it cant be an entertaining guilty pleasure. It just so happens this isnt one of those times. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The Hurricane Heist was shot in Bulgaria. Go gure.Did you know?

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 15-21, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY VINO Do you know the way to Viognier?Viognier is pronounced vee-own-YAY as it is French, like most of the maj0r wine grapes of the world and its a white wine you should really get to know. Its spiritual home is the northern Rhne Valley, specifically the tiny appellation of Condrieu. And tiny it is. Condrieu is less than 400 acres and includes the miniscule sub-appellation of Chateau-Grillet, which grows less than nine acres of this very interesting white grape. Problem is, this is a naturally low-yielding varietal, so vineyards dont produce tons of it and many winemakers dont find it profitable to bother with. But theres good news. In the rest of the world, like North and South America, New Zealand and even Israel, many talented winemakers are supporting and promoting Viognier wines, and with good reason. There are significant plantings in California and Australia and winemakers in Virginia have also taken up the challenge. Plus, Ive had some excellent examples of this varietal while traveling in Uruguay. California has a group of ambitious winemakers called the Rhne Rangers, who devote themselves to cultivating the traditional grapes of that region, such as Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and others. Since the mid 1980s theyve done quite a bit to promote Viognier cultivation and popularize the wine. Sidebar. In Australia, many Syrah producers blend about 5 percent of Viognier into their reds, where it amplifies the aromas and bouquet of the wine. But enough of that. What does it taste like? The real charm of Viognier is its very pronounced and characteristic floral aromas. Many people find that it offers a drinking experience similar to Chardonnay. The difference is that while Chardonnay gets many of its aromatic components from oak aging and malolactic fermentation, Viognier has a whole set of natural aromas that are quite distinctive and extremely pleasant. When you taste it for the first time, you will recognize it instantly every time afterward. There are flower and fruit aromas that are also found in sweeter wines like Muscat and Riesling, but Viognier is generally produced in a refreshing dry style and is meant to be enjoyed young. Back to those aromas. Youll generally sense pronounced notes of peach, white flowers like honeysuckle and jasmine, tangerine and often a hint of vanilla. Lovely. The floral aromas and fruit flavors put it in the same category as acidic German varietals like Gewrztraminer, and make it an excellent accompaniment to spicy cuisines, like Thai and Indian. It also complements shellfish, veal and pork. So heres the bottom line. If youre a big Chardonnay fan (and who isnt?) this wine is a refreshing change of pace. Our discoveries for the week. Grgich Hills Estate Fume Blanc Napa Valley 2015 ($31) Theres a nice complexity to this Sauvignon Blanc. Aging in large oak casks produces layers of toast, white pear, tropical fruit and cantaloupe. These unusual flavors combine for a long finish and an intriguing experience. Worth the money. WW 90-91. Frank Family Zinfandel Napa Valley 2014 ($34) Another surprising nontraditional interpretation of this popular varietal. Its slightly transparent in the glass (a surprise) and not a one-dimensional fruit bomb like many others. In addition, theres a healthy proportion of Petite Sirah and a dollop of Cabernet in the blend. Blueberry, wood and tobacco notes predominate. Really interesting. WW 89-90. Chapoutier Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem Cte du Roussillon Villages 2015 ($27) The name is a mouthful and so is the wine. This effort by one of the most distinguished winemakers of the Rhne valley is from the vast vineyard area of southwest France. Its inky dark with complex notes of leather, smoke, dried fruit, currant and red plum that are surprisingly gentle on the palate. Highly recommended. WW 93.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Does Viognier go equally well with any types of cheese? Paula L., Palm Beach GardensA: Youre in luck. The aromatics we mentioned above make it a sensational accompaniment to cheeses that fall on the creamier side, like Gruyere and St. Andr. For a real treat, bake some Brie with dried apricots on top, and pour yourself a big glass. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club. Read his other writings at www.winewhisperer.com. jerryGREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com Tim Klinefelter leads by example. As owner and manager of Hutton Seafood and Raw Bar in the Northwood community of West Palm Beach, Mr. Klinefelter does whatever needs to be done to make things run smoothly. Hell bus tables if needed, or jump behind the bar to make drinks, or even help a shucker who may be falling behind in the kitchen. His can-do and will-do attitude has gotten him far. He didnt get into the restaurant business until he was 29 and was looking for something different from what he had been doing for a living counseling emotionally disturbed adolescent boys in group homes. I decided to change my career focus to a move into management, Mr. Klinefelter said. I had never worked in the hospitality field, so I got a job as a server at a local casual restaurant in Charleston, S.C. I worked my way up the ranks and within two years I was promoted to general manager. I was the general manager of the owners most successful restaurant for over nine years. When I started it was a $1.3 million restaurant, and when I left we were a $4 million restaurant. The owners liked what they saw in him, so much so that when he told them he was interested in starting his own business, they offered to back him. I didnt come to the owners and say, I need money, I want to open my own restaurant, Mr. Klinefelter said. It was offered to me due to the jobs I did for them. All his dedication and hard work led Mr. Klinefelter to the Palm Beaches last year to open Hutton Seafood and Raw Bar. Where did the name come from? My last name is Klinefelter, he said. Nobody can spell or pronounce that, so that wasnt going to work. My dogs name is Cracker. That wasnt going to work. But before he landed in Northwood, Mr. Klinefelter looked at property previously used for a restaurant on South County Road in Palm Beach. Mr. Klinefelter loved the space. It had a good feeling, he said. The story behind it was that it was the last commissioned building being built by Mizner for E.F. H utton for his Palm Beach offices. I said if I got the space, I would name it Hutt on. I didnt get the space because it was just way too expensive. But I kept the name because I liked it. He put an ad for a chef on Craigslist and got 98 responses in 24 hours. He narrowed applications to four and settled on the one whose personality and talent best meshed with his. He (the chef) got that the concept that it wasnt going to be a chef-driven menu to start with, I was going to have say in absolutely everything, Mr. Klinefelter said. We collaborated a lot because hes very talented. Two weeks aft er he opened Hutton in Northwood, Hurricane Irma arrived. We closed for a week and a half and then opened back up and then it rained sideways for two straight months. And then, even though we have really great reviews, I think people only knew to come to this area for Caf Centro on Fridays and Saturdays. And even though we had a really good local response, theyre not going to eat here every single day. So, the season was off this year, came in a little late. He said the restaurant is trying to expand its reach this year. Palm Beachers who are here for the season are great, but you really want as many locals who are here all year round to know that youre here and to visit you all year round, because thats whats going to sustain you. So thats our focus right now. Hutton is a good seafood restaurant and there arent many of them in this coastal community, he said. We try to carry four to five types of oysters, plus theyre shucked right in front of you, so you can know theyre fresh, he said. We have a nice sort of eclectic menu that is all about sharing plates, so you sit down and order a bunch of different things and share them together. You dont have to do that, but its kind of how the menu is designed. We dont buy anything frozen. Everything is fresh. The dcor, Mr. Klinefelter said, is upper casual, designed with some nice decorative elements that make the space very warm and inviting. He lives two blocks away and embraces Old Northwood life. Buildings are from the 1920s and I just sort of like the authentic feel and the quirkiness of the area, he said. When hes not working, he enjoys going to other restaurants, and going to the beach to watch the waves and smell the water. I like to cook he said. I like to entertain. Cooking is beautiful and its fun for me and relaxing.

The long-awaited Aioli, a sibling of the original bake and sandwich shop in the south end of the city, opened last month after a 1-year build-out. Owners Mike and Melanie Hackman took over the spot once occupied by the Palm Beach Caf on Olive at Datura downtown.

The Loic Bakery and Caf Bar had its grand opening the first of the month after slipping into the downtown scene quietly in December. The former French paratrooper was introduced to Palm Beach County in Delray Beach at a French bakery there. He opened in West Palm Beach March 1 and turns out baguettes and olive breads, full-on buttery croissants, traditional French fruit tarts and cookies from the working bakery set in full view of the street and dining room. Quiches and a soup djour, a group of healthful salads, sandwiches, and cheese boards for sharing are on the French caf menu. Beer and wines also are available all day. The Loic Bakery is for food, friends and community, he notes on his website. Its bright with high ceilings and tall windows, and open to the views of the foot and tree-shaded street traffic nearby. An outdoor courtyard is also set with tables and folding chairs. Loic Bakery and Caf Bar, 480 Hibiscus St. (it faces South Dixie Highway), West Palm Beach.

The Beauty and the Beeeef, a modernmeets-mayhem menu spot, will open in late March in the Mall at Wellington Green. Over-the-top burgers, poke bowls, poutine, craft beer and Masonjar cocktails will be served. Speaking of mall restaurants, the one getting the most buzz is from Dr. Andrew Weil, health promoter, a partner in True Food Kitchen in Boca Raton. The international menu focuses on anti-inflammatory foods at the newly opened restaurant in Town Center at Boca Raton. SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYTHE DISH: Highlights from local menus The Dish: The Roni The Place: The Corner, Grandview Public Market, 1401 Clare Ave., West Palm Beach; www.grandviewpublic. com. The Price: $17 The Details: According to the publicity from the new Grandview Public Market, The Corner serves Detroit-style pizza. Appropriately enough, its situated in a corner of the market, which was bustling the Sunday afternoon I visited. But The Corner takes its name from the rectangular pies it serves. I loved the toppings of this pizza plenty of pepperoni, pickled chilies and honey with mozzarella and sweet, tangy tomato sauce. The crust, though, was not a favorite it was a little too oily for my taste, and a trifle too bready, even for a thick crust. I do want to return for more and to try one of the salads.

But a burst of energy is not always a good thing. Intermittent bursts of energy in the brain can lead to seizures and affect your consciousness, bodily movements or sensations for a short period of time. Repeated seizures could be a sign of epilepsy. Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain that can cause temporary confusion, staring spells, uncontrollable jerking motions of the arms and legs, and unconsciousness. About half of epilepsy cases occur for no known reason. However, it can be caused by genetic factors, head trauma, certain medical disorders like a stroke, dementia, prenatal injury, and developmental disorders such as autism or Down syndrome. People at increased risk for epilepsy are men, young children, adults over the age of 65, those with a family history of the disorder, anyone who has had a stroke or brain infection, and those who experienced high fevers in childhood. There are two main types of seizures with subcategories. Focal or partial seizures originate in one part of the brain. Simple focal seizures do not cause loss of consciousness, but may affect sensory perceptions and result in involuntary jerking of part of the body. Complex focal seizures change consciousness or awareness, and may result in non-purposeful movements, such as walking in circles or staring. Generalized seizures appear to involve the whole brain. They include: Absence seizures, also called petit mal, which cause subtle body movements and brief loss of awareness Tonic seizures that result in muscles stiffening Clonic seizures associated with recurring, twitching muscle contractions Myoclonic seizures that appear as sudden, jerking movements in the arms and legs Atonic seizures that cause loss of normal muscle tone Tonic-clonic seizures, also called grand mal, which are intense episodes of body stiffening, shaking, loss of consciousness, and occasional loss of bladder control or tongue biting Epilepsy can be diagnosed following blood tests as well as neurological and behavior examinations. Additional medical tests may be necessary, such as an electroencephalogram to check the electrical activity in the brain, or computerized tomography or magnetic resonance imaging to look for structural abnormalities like tumors, bleeding or cysts. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is the first hospital in Palm Beach County to have a dedicated Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) for patients in need of further assessment. The unit employs skilled technologists and a core nursing staff committed to providing the best possible inpatient monitoring experience. Our EMU is equipped with LongTerm Video Monitoring, a specialized form of an EEG in which the patient is continuously monitored on video while brainwave activity is recorded. It allows physicians to: Identify the onset triggers for seizures Differentiate epileptic events from psychogenic seizures Establish the specific type of epilepsy The video captured with this testing can be used to detect epileptic activity not detectable in routine EEGs and can be critical for the diagnosis of epilepsy.

4 healthy living MARCH 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYchance at long-term survival and, in many cases, cure. The most devastating part of receiving a cancer diagnosis is learning that treatment options are limited without being evaluated by a cancer specialist or that there isnt a nearby surgical oncologist at a comprehensive cancer center to treat you and your family. As the newest surgical oncologist at Jupiter Medical Center, allow me to offer a second opinion. I grew up in South Florida and completed my undergraduate and medical school training here. After completing a Complex General Surgical Oncology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, I joined the faculty there within the Division of Surgical Oncology. Being at one of the preeminent cancer programs in the country gave me the opportunity to treat rare and advanced cancers once thought to be incurable. As part of the Mount Sinai Hospital Health System, I returned to Palm Beach County in September 2017 as Medical Director for Surgical Oncology Network Development to provide first-class cancer surgery for patients here in South Florida. I came to Jupiter Medical Center because the hospital is committed to going above and beyond the scope of patient care. Within the Cancer Center, everyone is dedicated to transforming the future for cancer treatment and advancing our knowledge of understanding the disease. When I provide a surgical opinion on many of the cancers I treat, I confer with several treating physicians that are experts in their field to individualize the treatment plan. Patients benefit in a multitude of ways from a tightly coordinated team approach that begins at initial diagnosis, and is continually reevaluated throughout treatment. The team philosophy underlines that every patient is unique in all aspects and why second opinions are necessary when faced with a cancer diagnosis. This is of particular importance when evaluating silent cancers like those of the pancreas, bile ducts, liver, and gallbladder. These cancers are some of the most advanced and complex cancers that I treat surgically, and it is of utmost importance to be evaluated early following any suspicion of or confirmed diagnosis. My partners and I have extensive experience treating these tumors, and I routinely provide my patients here in Florida with a second opinion from other Mount SinaiNew York surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, and gastroenterologists without them having to leave the area. I am currently leading the research efforts to manage patients with pancreatic cancer and pancreatic cysts through more accurate diagnostic screening. In addition, I specialize in the management of advanced peritoneal carcinomatosis (a rare type of cancer that occurs in the peritoneum; the thin layer of tissue that covers abdominal organs and surrounds the abdominal cavity) through the application of Hyperthermic IntraPeritoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) a technique that combines surgery with chemotherapy delivered directly into the abdomen. I chose to be a cancer surgeon in part because cancer is both a challenging and fascinating disease process, and the ability to surgically eradicate it remains the most effective treatment. What I value most are the relationships with my patients, which are built on trust and hope. I am always striving to ensure that they have an accurate assessment of their cancer diagnosis and an expeditious treatment plan. Im grateful to return home and not only provide care to patients who havent had access to it, but to make an impact in the area where I grew up. Look for upcoming columns on the following topics: Rationale for HIPEC and patient selection. Treatment and new approaches for complex liver tumors.

Ajmo D.D.S., P.A.PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry 7100 Fairway Dr., Suite 59 Palm Beach Gardens561-627-8666PGAdentistry.com Advanced Smile Design Techniques in Palm Beach GardensYou may have cavities, older dental work, or even in need of major dental treatment, but with advanced dentistry, there's always a solution that can meet your needs. There are many wonders that a highly trained cosmetic and restorative dentist can offer patients that may surprise you. Major issues with dental health can be effectively treated, and even the most serious dental problems can be dealt with. In order to achieve such great results, however, it's often necessary for a dentist to have extensive experience and training in both dental reconstruction and cosmetics. This is the world of advanced smile design, and we'd like to take a few minutes to look into it right now. What does smile design refer to? Smile design refers to the ability for a dentist to create a smile that not only looks attractive, but suits the patient's facial features for an overall healthy and natural appearance. Simultaneously, we can achieve excellent dental health and function, giving patients the ability to eat whatever they'd like and smile with confidence.Advanced Digital TechnologySmile design today involves the use of extensive digital photography of a patient's face, teeth and existing smile so that the doctor can custom design a new smile for each individual. Teeth can be lengthened, straightened, brightened, and properly aligned so the final result is a beautiful healthy smile that becomes an expression of the true self. "Our patients are welcome to look through a number of before and after photos of actual patients we've treated", states Dr. Ajmo. "Once they see what we've done for so many others, they quickly realize we can the same for them too." PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry also uses 3D CT Technology for all dental implant treatment. 3D Technology is much more accurate than traditional black and white x-rays, allowing Dr. Ajmo to precisely place dental implants in the proper location in your jaws.Customized Smile Makeover TreatmentYour smile makeover may include a number of treatment options depending on your personal needs and desires. It may involve replacing older crowns with new cosmetic metal free crowns which look so much more natural and will usually last longer. We could also enhance chipped, worn or dark teeth with cosmetic porcelain veneers for a brighter more youthful appearance. In some cases we may makeover the upper teeth and simply bleach the lower teeth and achieve outstanding results.Customized Full Mouth Reconstruction TreatmentFull mouth reconstructions involve replacing missing teeth with dental implants and replacing older dental work with new metal free state-of-theart porcelains.Of course there is always an emphasis on the overall health and wellness of the mouth, but these treatments are always combined with cosmetic enhancements to achieve overall long term dental health and esthetics. A full mouth reconstructions may involve dental implants, crowns, bridgework or a number of necessary treatment modalities. Either way, the overall goal involves feeling healthy, looking your best, being able to eat meals properly and giving patients the ability to live life to the fullest. What to Expect from a Dental Restorative Makeover Whether you undergo a smile makeover or a full mouth reconstruction, you can expect great results and improved dental wellness. And thanks to advanced dentistry, you can usually have all necessary treatments performed in the same office with the mutual understanding that your mouth will be healthy and your smile will look great. With Advanced Dentistry, patients can experience optimum dental care to support overall health and well being.Learn More About Advanced Dental CareIf you would like to learn more about smile design and your many options out there for cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry or dental implant treatment, contact our Palm Beach Gardens office today.

More than 150 gathered at MPFI to network and share their research findings. In the last five years, FAUs neuroscience presence has grown dramatically, said Rod Murphey, Ph.D., director of the JLSI and chair of the Department of Biological Sciences at FAU. This very impressive showing at the SYNAPSE event demonstrates our success. Representatives from nearby Nova Southeastern University and Torrey Pines Institute also took advantage of this unique event. SYNAPSE 2018 gave the unique opportunity for researchers, ranging from undergraduates to principal investigators from all institutes, to come together to share their work and network, said Serena Sossi, FAU Ph.D. candidate. This intermingling of backgrounds inescapably leads to a flow of ideas allowing collaboration to flourish.

The unconditional love of a pet can do more than keep you company. Pets may also decrease stress, improve heart health, and even help children with their emotional and social skills. An estimated 68 percent of U.S. households have a pet. But who benefits from an animal? And which type of pet brings health benefits?

Some studies have shown positive health effects, but the results have been mixed. Interacting with animals has been shown to decrease levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone) and lower blood pressure. Other studies have found that animals can reduce loneliness, increase feelings of social support, and boost your mood. The NIH/Mars Partnership is funding a range of studies focused on the relationships we have with animals. For example, researchers are looking at how animals might influence child development. Theyre studying animal interactions with kids who have autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other conditions. Theres not one answer about how a pet can help somebody with a specific condition, explains Dr. Layla Esposito, who oversees NIHs Human AnimalInteraction Research Program. Is your goal to increase physical activity? Then you might benefit from owning a dog. You have to walk a dog several times a day and youre going to increase physical activity. If your goal is reducing stress, sometimes watching fish swim can result in a feeling of calmness. Theres no one type fits all. NIH is funding large-scale surveys to find out the range of pets people live with and how their relationships with their pets relate to health. Were trying to tap into the subjective quality of the relationship with the animalthat part of the bond that people feel with animalsand how that translates into some of the health benefits, explains Dr. James Griffin, a child development expert at NIH.Animals helping peopleAnimals can serve as a source of comfort and support. Therapy dogs are especially good at this. Theyre sometimes brought into hospitals or nursing homes to help reduce patients stress and anxiety. Dogs are very present. If someone is struggling with something, they know how to sit there and be loving, says Dr. Ann Berger, a physician and researcher at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Their attention is focused on the person all the time. Berger works with people who have cancer and terminal illnesses. She teaches them about mindfulness to help decrease stress and manage pain. The foundations of mindfulness include attention, intention, compassion, and awareness, Berger says. All of those things are things that animals bring to the table. People kind of have to learn it. Animals do this innately. Researchers are studying the safety of bringing animals into hospital settings because animals may expose people to more germs. A current study is looking at the safety of bringing dogs to visit children with cancer, Esposito says. Scientists will be testing the childrens hands to see if there are dangerous levels of germs transferred from the dog after the visit. Dogs may also aid in the classroom. One study found that dogs can help children with ADHD focus their attention. Researchers enrolled two groups of children diagnosed with ADHD into 12-week group therapy sessions. The first group of kids read to a therapy dog once a week for 30 minutes. The second group read to puppets that looked like dogs. Kids who read to the real animals showed better social skills and more sharing, cooperation, and volunteering. They also had fewer behavioral problems. Another study found that children with autism spectrum disorder were calmer while playing with guinea pigs in the classroom. When the children spent 10 minutes in a supervised group playtime with guinea pigs, their anxiety levels dropped. The children also had better social interactions and were more engaged with their peers. The researchers suggest that the animals offered unconditional acceptance, making them a calm comfort to the children. Animals can become a way of building a bridge for those social interactions, Griffin says. He adds that researchers are trying to better understand these effects and who they might help. Animals may help you in other unexpected ways. A recent study showed that caring for fish helped teens with diabetes better manage their disease. Researchers had a group of teens with type 1 diabetes care for a pet fish twice a day by feeding and checking water levels. The caretaking routine also included changing the tank water each week. This was paired with the children reviewing their blood glucose (blood sugar) logs with parents. Researchers tracked how consistently these teens checked their blood glucose. Compared with teens who werent given a fish to care for, fish-keeping teens were more disciplined about checking their own blood glucose levels, which is essential for maintaining their health. While pets may bring a wide range of health benefits, an animal may not work for everyone. Recent studies suggest that early exposure to pets may help protect young children from developing allergies and asthma. But for people who are allergic to certain animals, having pets in the home can do more harm than good.Helping each otherPets also bring new responsibilities. Knowing how to care for and feed an animal is part of owning a pet. NIH/ Mars funds studies looking into the effects of human-animal interactions for both the pet and the person. Remember that animals can feel stressed and fatigued, too. Its important for kids to be able to recognize signs of stress in their pet and know when not to approach. Animal bites can cause serious harm. Dog bite prevention is certainly an issue parents need to consider, especially for young children who dont always know the boundaries of whats appropriate to do with a dog, Esposito explains. Researchers will continue to explore the many health effects of having a pet. Were trying to find out whats working, whats not working, and whats safefor both the humans and the animals, Esposito says.

Thats because sleeping helps strengthen memories youve formed throughout the day. It also helps to link new memories to earlier ones. You might even come up with creative new ideas while you slumber. What happens to memories in your brain while you sleep? And how does lack of sleep affect your ability to learn and remember? NIH-funded scientists have been gathering clues about the complex relationship between sleep and memory. Their findings might eventually lead to new approaches to help students learn or help older people hold onto memories as they age. Weve learned that sleep before learning helps prepare your brain for initial formation of memories, says Dr. Matthew Walker, a sleep scientist at the University of California, Berkeley. And then, sleep after learning is essential to help save and cement that new information into the architecture of the brain, meaning that youre less likely to forget it. While you snooze, your brain cycles through different phases of sleep, including light sleep, deep sleep, and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, when dreaming often occurs. The cycles repeat about every 90 minutes. The non-REM stages of sleep seem to prime the brain for good learning the next day. If you havent slept, your ability to learn new things could drop by up to 40%. You cant pull an all-nighter and still learn effectively, Walker says. Lack of sleep affects a part of the brain called the hippocampus, which is key for making new memories. You accumulate many memories, moment by moment, while youre awake. Most will be forgotten during the day. When we first form memories, theyre in a very raw and fragile form, says sleep expert Dr. Robert Stickgold of Harvard Medical School. But when you doze off, sleep seems to be a privileged time when the brain goes back through recent memories and decides both what to keep and what not to keep, Stickgold explains. During a night of sleep, some memories are strengthened. Research has shown that memories of certain procedures, like playing a melody on a piano, can actually improve while you sleep. Memories seem to become more stable in the brain during the deep stages of sleep. After that, REMthe most active stage of sleepseems to play a role in linking together related memories, sometimes in unexpected ways. Thats why a full night of sleep may help with problem-solving. REM sleep also helps you process emotional memories, which can reduce the intensity of emotions. Its well known that sleep patterns tend to change as we age. Unfortunately, the deep memory-strengthening stages of sleep start to decline in our late 30s. A study by Walker and colleagues found that adults older than 60 had a 70% loss of deep sleep compared to young adults ages 18 to 25. Older adults had a harder time remembering things the next day, and memory impairment was linked to reductions in deep sleep. The researchers are now exploring options for enhancing deep stages of sleep in this older age group. While we have limited medical treatments for memory impairment in aging, sleep actually is a potentially treatable target, Walker says. By restoring sleep, it might be possible to improve memory in older people. For younger people, especially students, Stickgold offers additional advice. Realize that the sleep you get the night after you study is at least as important as the sleep you get the night before you study. When it comes to sleep and memory, he says, you get very little benefit from cutting corners.
