The West Palm Beach museum is undergoing a sweeping renovation that will reorient its entrance from the south side to the west, facing Dixie Highway, and will increase its exhibition space by 37 percent. The Norton, which is scheduled to close July 15, will reopen to the public Feb. 9, 2019, unveiling a design by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Lord Norman Foster, principal of Foster + Partners. Education space also will increase by 50 percent. New public gardens the first to be designed by Norman Foster will feature 11 modern and contemporary sculptures, and a new entrance will be anchored by Claes Oldenburgs monumental Pop sculpture Typewriter Eraser, Scale X (19981999). The museum also announced a promised gift made by Palm Beach residents Howard and Judie Ganek of their collection in celebration of the new Norton. Comprising more than 100 modern and contemporary artworks, including painting, sculpture, ceramics and photography representing primarily European and American artists, the collection will enhance the representation of art from this era with significant examples by major figures previously not represented in the Nortons holdings.

Take one step off the edge of that platform and youre standing in a cemetery called history what other people saw and recorded and what others yet concluded about it. History is a grave marker, an epitaph. Memory is alive. The terrible adventure of World War I, therefore, is now for all purposes lost to memory. World War I is history. But every breath we take still trembles with the inhalations of 6 million murdered European Jews and at least 23 million other civilians killed by genocide or in military action on the planet in World War II. Total military deaths from all causes number 21 million to 25 million, according to government and historic estimates; 407,300 were Americans. The victims are not yet lost to memory, not yet consigned only to history. Most of the murdered Jews died between 1940 and 1945; roughly half were Polish. And they died in terrible pain from bullets, fire, gas, ropes, privation and disease. But even as victims they still have a life among us, because we remember them. A few of our neighbors and fellow countrymen knew them and talked to them in some cases watched them die because they were with them when they died. Let me describe just one of the many camps in Europe where Jews were violently murdered by Germans: Auschwitz. The German army had seized half of Poland in a single month in 1939. The country itself is about 80 percent the size of Texas. Auschwitz is located in south central Poland only 303 miles from Berlin, 334 miles from Prague, 520 miles from Munich, 621 miles from Rome, and 750 miles from Paris (a few miles farther than the distance from Miami to Atlanta). In those German and European cities and many others, people frequently ignored or even helped deport Jews to Auschwitz and places like it during the war. As they did elsewhere, at Auschwitz the Germans began shooting civilians. But ultimately that took an emotional toll on the executioners they sought to avoid, so they began looking for other, more efficient methods of killing. In 1940, the Germans converted old barracks at Auschwitz to prisoner quarters, began shipping the prisoners in by train from Germany and across Europe, and eventually began creating additional buildings airtight designed as gas chambers. The next year, 1941, they began systematically killing Jews with a cyanide-based gas called ZyklonB. Men, women and children were marched into those chambers, frequently forced to raise their arms above their heads so they could pack more people inside, and made to stand in fear until their executioners poured pellets of ZyklonB through ports in the ceiling. When the pellets hit air, they became gas. Victims died not by going to sleep and becoming comatose, but in terrible agony over periods as long as 15 or more minutes, witnesses have said. As they suffocated, they clutched each other in desperation and panic. Their blood vessels ruptured under their skins. They bled from the ears, foamed at the mouth and died twitching or jerking in spasms that only gradually subsided. One wonders if mothers and fathers had the presence of mind and courage to kill their own children quickly, seeking to spare them agony. None can say. With the trains running efficiently and the ZyklonB system working as they designed it, the Germans killed about 6,000 people each day at Auschwitz mostly Jews, but also Roma (gypsies), homosexuals, resisters, religious opponents and prisoners of war.Auschwitz as a general term includes several nearby locations Auschwitz IIBirkenau, which served both as a slave labor camp and an extermination camp with efficiently built gas chambers and Auschwitz 3. Between May 1940 and May 1945 when the Germans surrendered to the Allies, 1.1 million people died at Auschwitz alone.Many victims whose last sight was the inside of a chamber would live among us today, if Hitler had been stopped earlier. Theyd be old now, children born in the 1920s or s or early s. For all practical purposes they lived in our world, a world with electricity and indoor plumbing; with radio and telephone; with books, journals and daily newspapers. They would have understood us because theirs was the beginning of our culture, with its computers and cell phones and social media. You know those people, and so do I: vibrant children with missing teeth and big smiles; hard-working parents who loved them; kindly old folks who put those kids on their knees. They were beautiful young women and men who could have fallen in love, shared sex, work, friendship and lives, and made a million new worlds of healthy babies and hope. But they were killed in an organized, cattle-herd slaughter, a genocide, by German Nazis and fellow Europeans. We will offer this simple plea or prayer, therefore: Let us remember them while we still can. Let us celebrate their lives by knowing their tragic history. And let us share that history with our children, always. Every breath we take still trembles with the inhalations of 6 million murdered European Jews and at least 23 million other civilians killed by genocide or in military action on the planet in World War II.

OPINIONPruitt awaits his fateIn spite of all the controversy about Scott Pruitts cushy D.C. condo, its entirely appropriate that he was getting a sweetheart deal on a place to sleep. After all, for his entire political career, hes been in bed with the special business interests who resist any and all government efforts to protect against their ravaging of the environment. In Oklahoma, as a state senator, then attorney general, and now the Trump administrations Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Pruitt has been a stalwart opponent of any regulation that would get in the way of the energy companies that have been his patrons. They and their extremist advocates have rewarded his efforts on their behalf handsomely. Now that he has brought their boughtand-paid-for agenda to Washington, he has turned the EPA into the Environmental Punishment Agency. He has been dismantling clean-planet rules left and right, and is dogmatically ignoring climate change science as he represents big business in pushing President Donald Trumps anti-regulation agenda. Hes also been living large, or trying to. His ridiculously cheap living arrangement at a lobbyist-owned apartment within spitting distance of the Capitol has been exposed by media reports, so he violated scoundrel rule No. 1 which, of course, is dont get caught. He was charged $50 a night, far, far below market rate in D.C., but even with all the industry largesse, hes gotten greedy. And clumsy. In fact, Pruitt is quickly becoming legendary, even by Washingtons dreary standards. His insistence on spending $40,000-plus of taxpayer money to construct a soundproof telephone room at his agency for his use was just one embarrassment. Until the drumbeat of criticism got too loud, he insisted on flying first class. EPA policy requires economy seating, with permission granted for an upgrade in exceptional circumstances. Pruitt has adopted a policy of avoiding any but the friendliest, churning out interviews with the likes of Fox News and the right-wing Washington Times. However, even the Fox News interview was awkward, with correspondent Ed Henry asking tougher questions than he expected. He fumbled them, plain and simple. Looking bad on TV is the original sin in the Gospel According to Donald Trump. So down at Casa Blanca, el presidente is trying to determine whether all the bad publicity is enough to add Scott Pruitt to the list of those he must replace. On the one hand, Pruitt has been shamelessly effective at gutting environment-saving regulations at the EPA. That pleases POTUS, who insists he has full confidence in Pruitt. But is that the Don Trump Kiss of Death? The indicators are becoming familiar. The president and maybe Chief of Staff John Kelly assure the unfortunate one that they have his back. At the same time, Sarah Huckabee Sanders or another White House-designated knife-wielder makes it clear that they possibly mean that his back is there to stab. So here was Sanders, making sure reporters knew: Were reviewing the situation. When we have had a chance to have a deeper dive on it, well let you know the outcomes of that. Scott Pruitt may be the next to take the dive ... with concrete. If hes smart, even while he struggles to stay on, hell be making sure all those wealthy special interests are there when he leaves power, so he can cash in his chits. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Mark Zuckerbergs insufferable tripeOnce again, Mark Zuckerberg is sorry. The founder of Facebook, who has apologized for privacy breaches throughout much of his companys existence, is back at it, on a much larger stage than ever before. The proximate cause is the Cambridge Analytica controversy. In violation of Facebooks rules, the Trumplinked political consultancy schemed to get access to the data of 87 million users. This has made Facebook a scapegoat for President Donald Trumps victory on par with the Russians and James Comey (at least before the FBI director got fired and became a Trump adversary). Its not Zuckerbergs fault that he has suddenly been deemed on the wrong side of history, but the Cambridge Analytica blowup is bringing a useful spotlight on the most sanctimoniously selfregarding large company in America. Facebook cant bear to admit that it has garnered the largest collection of data known to man to sell ads against and line the pockets of its founder and investors. The problem isnt that Mark Zuckerberg is a businessman, and an exceptionally gifted one, but that he pretends to have stumbled out of the lyrics of John Lennons song Imagine. To listen to him, Facebook is all about connectivity and openness he just happens to have made roughly $63 billion as the T-shirt-wearing champion of the global community, whatever that means. Its this pose that makes him and other Facebook officials sound so shifty. In a rocky interview with Savannah Guthrie of the Today show, Sheryl Sandberg was asked what product Facebook sells. Were selling the opportunity to connect with people, she said, before catching herself, but its not for sale. Something or other must be for sale, or Facebook is the first company to rocket to the top ranks of corporate America based on having no product or profit motive. Guthrie, persisting, stated that Facebook sweeps up data for the use of advertisers. Sandberg objected: We are not sweeping data. People are inputting data. Uh, yeah. Thats the genius of it. In a reported exchange with a friend while he was a student at Harvard, Zuckerberg boasted of having data on thousands of students because people just submitted it. Zuckerberg has now managed the same trick on a global scale. On the one hand, Facebook has indeed made efforts to protect the data of its users, knowing that it cant risk a fundamental breach of trust. On the other, Zuckerberg has repeatedly said hes sorry for offenses against his users privacy because his business model contradicts his selfrighteous public posture. Its possible to imagine something like Facebook run as a nonprofit service for the global commons. Thats not what Zuckerberg chose to do. To his credit, he created a compelling nay, for some people, addicting product and made a killing for the ages. Perhaps the public pressure will force the social network to give its customers even more control over the use of their data. At a minimum, it will have achieved something if it gets Facebook to give up the saccharine one-world rhetoric about its mission and admit the bottom line is as important to it as any other profit-making company.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYof the best examples is the number of remote air fields Florida had at the end of World War II. Decades of expansion have erased many of these, but ones like Buckingham Airfield east of Fort Myers have endured to become the perfect place to hold autocross events. Established in 1942, the army airfield trained 50,000 gunners to defend bombers before closing in 1945. Since then it has quietly grown into a small airplane community, a hub for controlling the mosquito population, and the home of the Gulfcoast Autocrossers. Autocross is a competition event where performance cars can legally be used to the fullest. These events traditionally need an open space of tarmac where courses can be laid out with something as simple (and forgiving) as plastic cones. Traditionally everything is welcomed from daily drivers to performance machines just legal enough to earn a license plate. They are divided into competitive categories, and everyone races the same course for the fastest time. Autocross is one of the most economic ways to do high-performance driving, according to Mike Lawson, driver, instructor and member at Gulfcoast Autocrossers. Mr. Lawson is quite competitive with a Scion FR-S. Its a rear-wheel drive coupe that can be picked up for well under $30K at a dealership today, and its already ready for competition this weekend. After initial preparation, a local racer might only need a set of tires annually and suspension component semiannually. So, the investment in maintenance can be as low as $1,000 per year. But there is another side. Im a poster child for excess, says Gulfcoast Autocrossers president Craig Ellis. He has a race-repaired 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and that doesnt even guarantee dominance. Ive spent a quarter-million, and I can still get beat by a nearly stock Miata. Mr. Ellis is not mismanaging his funds. Its just more of a point about autocross events autocross uses tight turning courses where a car with quick acceleration can be more competitive than one built for all-out speed. So, while Mr. Ellis enhanced Corvette can assert its dominance on longer road courses, its Buckingham lap times may never compare to something more commuterfriendly. In fact, the prime racing upgrade to any car arguably cant be found on a parts shelf. The best modification in autocrossing is the driver, says Mr. Lawson. It takes an investment in time to learn from other experts and practice on a racecourse to really be competitive. Gulfcoast is one of the few autocross organizations that also runs a school for novices. People like Mr. Ellis and Mr. Lawson take drivers in their own vehicles and help them understand what a sports car really can do. Those who get bit by the racing bug during the Saturday learning sessions are the ones likely to pay $30 to hit the track on Sunday for the full event. There is plenty more racing to be enjoyed across South Florida, which has led to an active chapter of the Sports Car Club of America. This is a sanctioning body and educational hub for people who want to drive full-speed on professional racecourses and/or want to move closer to professional competition. For those who are more into grand touring than competing with their vehicles, South Florida also accommodates. The annual Florida Car Marathon takes place later this month. Its a precision rally, which rewards participants for accurately holding a sustained reasonable average speed rather than highperformance driving. Thus, it provides the excitement of competition without needing to break legal speeds. During its 500-mile run, the Florida Car Marathon will hit hotspots like the Sebring International Raceway. But no matter if its part of a driving event or just on a Sunday solo cruise, any enthusiast driving through south central Florida should make this stop. Sebring is home to a 12-hour endurance race every spring that is one of the most famous in the world. This sevendecade tradition is where professional teams and ambitious amateurs are given half a day to prove their mettle. This is the long-standing testbed for the latest in road course racing, said Jonathan Brownfield, a South Florida autocrosser, writer, Sebring attendee and all-around car-crazy enthusiast. Theres a palpable excitement as past legends are connected through continuing to push the limits of competition and endurance. Even those who cant make it to the 12 hours of Sebring can participate in some weekend SCCA and club events. And there is a ton of respect for any vehicle that spends time on this hallowed racing ground. Heck, even just an official coffee mug from the welcome center will get respectful nods from fellow enthusiasts. Sebring is South Floridas most famous raceway, but its far from the only track. There is everything from amateurs running their quarter-mile drag racers at Palm Beach International Raceway, to the NASCAR season closer at Homestead-Miami Speedway. While Gulfcoast is unique with its autocross school, many of these raceways will also have a driving school for those interested in learning how to properly get on the track. But Floridas automotive culture doesnt have to be highly organized or expensive to enjoy. Anyone who doesnt want to be a part of a planned event can find pleasure in a lazy Sunday on the Tamiami Trail or get adventitious finding new back roads across our state. Even those who dont want to go far can appreciate a local event in their affordable classic cars and/or just enjoy being a spectator. One of the easiest car shows to find today is Cars & Coffee. While this tradition started out in California, the car-crazy lifestyle of Florida means that most major cities have someone organizing one locally. What keeps the event popular is its unpretentious spirit. A brand-new 755 horsepower Corvette ZR1 can be parked next to a hodgepodge Volkswagen Beetle both sharing the common thread of automotive passion. The entire soul of Cars & Coffee is about being without airs and exceptionally affordable. There are plenty of similar events around South Florida using this name, but its not born from an official franchise. Cars & Coffee is just held together by automotive camaraderie. If one is charging money to park in the regular parking lot, and/or scrutinizing vehicles, then they dont understand this grand tradition. But the good news is, even if the local one is getting greedy, theres likely a proper Cars & Coffee right down the road. When it comes to some of the best automotive events, snowbird season also often means car show season. So, while they might clog up the roads, CRAZEDFrom page 1 ELLIS COURTESY PHOTOThe Cavallino Classic takes place Jan. 23-27, 2019, at The Breakers in Palm Beach.COURTESY PHOTOBarrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction is an April tradition at the South Florida Fairgrounds.COURTESY PHOTOBoca Raton Concours DElegance brings together vintage vehicles with a variety of pedigrees.
PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 NEWS A9some of this added traffic includes choice machines. Both the east coast and west coast of Florida have a terrific premium example of a winter event featuring one of the worlds most celebrated brands. Every January the Cavallino Classic showcases multimillion-dollar classic Ferraris on the pristine lawns of The Breakers of Palm Beach. For those who cant afford the exclusive ticket, or just want to see these supercars live up to their reputation, there is an alternative. There are track events at PBIR held the week before the show that remind us that these concours-level prancing horses still burn high-octane. While the Cavallino thrives on exclusivity, Cars on Fifth is a Naples February tradition that is one of the most accessible events around. In fact, although its held by the local chapter of the Ferrari Club of America, the charity gathering has grown rapidly to invite everything from Jaguars to American muscle cars. By April weve just concluded most of the major winter events. Its time now to plan ahead for next years shows like the Boca Raton Concours dElegance, Wheels Across the Pond (British car show in Jupiter,) Naples Motorfest, and many other worthwhile gatherings. There are even new events being organized like the first-ever Gasparilla Concours dElegance in Tampa next year. The same weather and wealth that enrich shows in the winter also attract the car auctions. The Mecum Kissimmee sale every January has grown into a two-week event. There are so many cars filling the fairgrounds (over 3,000 in 2018) that enthusiasts can treat this more like a car show than an auction. And for those interested in buying, the massive number of vehicles needed to sustain a sale of this size also means there are plenty of affordable classics. Other major South Florida auctions also follow this feeling of providing something for everyone. The BarrettJackson Palm Beach sale has become an April tradition that feels like a mini fair with food vendors, trinkets and cars under four big top tents. And while there are plenty of new and vintage exotic machines, there are also sensible cars that sell for under $5,000. Of course, there are some great museums for those who really want to see the best cars. The Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum is home to a world-class showing of Packards. Muscle Car City in Punta Gorda lives up to its name with some of the best American big power machines around. The Elliott Museum in Stuart has a unique glass showcase that can bring cars closers to visitors with just the touch of a display screen. The best of them all is The Revs Institute. The Collier family has been at the bedrock of American Racing, and Miles Colliers collection is a worldclass affair that is housed in Naples. It celebrates the art of the automobile, and theres a full wing devoted to Porsche (including a few cars that the company would love to have back in in their corporate holdings.) Plus, this is the largest collection of the racecars that Briggs Cunningham built in West Palm Beach to take on the world. The Revs Institute has spent many years as a private collection. But their mission to educate and preserve the classic car culture has led them to reopened to the public. Viewing times are limited and tickets must be purchased in advance. In the end, South Florida is a strong and varied car culture thats concentrated onto a small peninsula. We are the home to professional racing teams, track day amateurs, retired CEOs with $1 million prototypes and teenagers with muscle car aspirations. And its our inviting car culture that gives every one of these people a place to go, a place to see and a place to be seen. COURTESY PHOTOThe Mecum Kissimmee sale is each January.ROBBIE SPENCER / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Revs Institute in Naples.COURTESY PHOTOThe Cavallino Classic brings together classic Ferraris. It takes place Jan. 23-27, 2019, at The Breakers. Hirst, Anselm Kiefer, Sigmar Polke, Ed Ruscha, and Kara Walker; sculpture by Theaster Gates, Donald Judd, Anish Kapoor, Mario Merz, Juan Muoz, and Kiki Smith; and photo-based work by Matthew Barney, Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman, Lorna Simpson, Pipilotti Rist, Bill Viola, and William Wegman, among many others. A selection of these works will be on view as part of the museums grand reopening. This commitment from the Ganeks is among the most important in the history of the museum, transforming our collection, Hope Alswang, executive director and CEO, said in a statement. Leading the group of inaugural exhibitions will be the latest installment in the critically acclaimed RAW (Recognition of Art by Women) series, which discovers and promotes the work of contemporary women artists. Thanks to the Leonard and Sophie Davis Fund / ML Dauray Arts Initiative, which initially funded RAW for six years, the series will continue. The $1 million gift also established the three-year Sophie Davis Curatorial Fellowship for Gender and Racial Parity, which has been awarded to LadiSasha Jones, who began this February. In addition to the special exhibitions, the inauguration of The New Norton will feature site-specific installations commissioned for the grand opening. New York City-based artist Rob Wynne (American, born 1950), who works with text and hand-poured glass, will construct a work around the three-story Muriel and Ralph Saltzman Stairway that leads visitors between collection galleries in the new Foster-designed west wing. This commission will incorporate and expand upon Mr. Wynnes earlier piece, I Remember Ceramic Castles, Mermaids & Japanese Bridges (2012), which the Norton commissioned for installation in the original Ruth and Carl Shapiro Great Hall. A compilation of short films by photography and video artist Gregory Scott that provide a tongue-in-cheek view of art, artists and museums will screen in the new Leonard and Evelyn Lauder Restaurant. The artist selected to create an installation for the new Ruth and Carl Shapiro Great Hall will be announced at a later date. Thematic installations of sculptures by major artists will be incorporated into the public garden. The subtropical garden and green space will echo the spatial concept of the museums original 1941 master plan. Mimicking the series of Art Deco-inspired pavilions encircling the museums central courtyard, the Foster-designed garden will feature a sequence of garden rooms along the southern edge of the museum campus, ringing the Pamela and Robert B. Goergen Garden. Each room will be defined by native trees and plantings and will feature sculptures by such artists as Keith Haring, George Rickey, and Mark di Suvero, whose work will enter the Nortons permanent collection for the first time. Inaugural exhibitions include: RAW: Nina Chanel Abney Feb. 9-June 25. Nina Chanel Abney (American, b. 1982) paints in a bold graphic style with a brilliantly colored palette and addresses the injustices of our time in compositions densely populated with abstracted, symbolic figures and shapes. Out of the Box: Camera-less Photography Feb. 9-June 16. From the earliest days of photography, artists have experimented with ways to record images without the use of a conventional camera apparatus. Out of the Box will present 40 works in this tradition drawn from the Nortons permanent collection of photography, most of which have never been shown publicly. Going Public: Florida Collectors Celebrate the Norton Feb. 9-June 4. This will include 50 to 60 rarely seen works from prestigious private South Florida collections. Artists in this exhibition will include Mary Cassatt, Nick Cave, Bruce Conner, Rockwell Kent, Anselm Kiefer, Roy Lichtenstein and Jenny Saville, among others. Modern Spontaneity: Ralph Nortons Watercolors Feb. 9-May 7. The Nortons founder, Ralph Norton, loved the medium of watercolor and acquired major examples by both modern American and European artists. A selection of these will be the subject of the exhibition Modern Spontaneity, featuring 17 watercolors from late 19th-century masters such as Winslow Homer through modernists such as Charles Burchfield, Charles Demuth and Fernand Lger. Good Fortune to All: A Chinese Lantern Festival in 16th-Century Nanjing Feb. 9-Jan. 28, 2020. Good Fortune to All will present an exceptionally rare group of six paintings from the late 16th century, which together depict a continuous scene of a Lantern Festival in Nanjing, the capital city of the Hongwu Emperor (reigned 13681398) who founded the Ming dynasty. Spotlight: Ralston Crawford Across Media Feb. 9-May 14. The museum will highlight a loan of a Ralston Crawford oil painting alongside a watercolor and three photographs by the modernist artist from the collection, three of which are new acquisitions.

After all, it is no fun owing a mortgage, student loan, auto loan or credit card companies. But what if I told you that no matter how big a payment you were able to make, you will still have more debt than you will ever possibly be able to repay? The Institute of International Finance just released its annual calculation of the amount of global debt outstanding in the world and the number is mindboggling. So what is this number and how will that affect you and the financial markets going forward? Each year the institute, a global banking trade association, estimates the amount of debt outstanding in the world. This includes household debt, corporate debt, government debt and debt issued by banks and other financial institutions. Just last week, the group estimated that this number for 2017 was $237 trillion. The number is so large that to understand it, we must put it in perspective. There are around 5.4 billion adults in the world and if this debt were to be repaid equally among them, each ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com SEE BUILDING, A14 SEE DEBT, A14 BUILDINGBETTERRELATIONSHIPSSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________Earn loyalty, referrals and repeat business by engaging with your clients in the right wayHESE DAYS TRUST IS AT AN ALL-TIME low. People are suspicious of organizations, institutions and leaders across the board. At the same time, competition is fierce. Your clients can leave you at any time (and for any reason) and replace your services with something faster, shinier, sexier. But heres the good news, says Paul Krasnow: When youre able to engage with clients the right way and build deeply connected, trust-based relationships TStrong client relationships are hard to come by and clients know it ...

A14 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY with them, you automatically set yourself apart. Strong client relationships are hard to come by and clients know it, says Mr. Krasnow, author of The Success Code: A Guide for Achieving Your Personal Best in Business and Life. Thats why, when you know how to create such relationships, you win your clients loyalty, earn referrals and enjoy repeat business for life. But such deep connections cannot be faked, he stresses. They require your attention, your care and your authentic desire to serve your clients to the best of your ability. In both bad times and good, your commitment to them should be your top priority. Not everyone is willing to create and nurture these kinds of relationships. If you are, your business will thrive. Mr. Krasnow knows this truth because he has lived it. A financial representative at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, hes been a top producer for 40 years and has won many Top Agent titles with a performance record built upon years of engaging with clients and acting on the best practices he reveals in The Success Code. Here are some of them: First, commit to a personal code of integrity and live it each day Integrity should be a core value that steers all of your client interactions. This means committing to being honest and working hard with their best interests in mind. Develop a set of business integrity mantras you can strategically place around your office on Post-it notes or even posters, Mr. Krasnow suggests. Use them to remind yourself to always align your decisions with your code of business conduct. Give them peace of mind Your clients should always be in good hands with you. Develop a system that works for you to proactively give clients the highest level of service at all times. Whether its having a perfectly tweaked project management system or a crystal clear communication system, make sure you can always respond to your clients in a timely manner and that you provide expert answers to all of their questions. Build trust by keeping your promises If customer connections are the cornerstone of a successful business, trust is the cornerstone of a healthy client relationship, Mr. Krasnow says. Remember to keep your word and to deliver without fail. Keeping your word can be as small but equally important as never canceling an appointment or going over the allotted time for a meeting. This guideline might seem simplistic, he adds, but the approach will not only impress and delight clients, it will allow them to trust you with more business in the future. Building client trust makes you a winner every time. Be honest about what your services can deliver Dont oversell or overpromise the results you offer. Manage your clients expectations so they wont be disappointed. But whenever possible, do put them in touch with others who can help them where you cannot. Maybe they come to see you for insurance policies, but your consultant pal from college could help them streamline their business initiatives so you connect them, Mr. Krasnow says. This will only widen your networks and strengthen your client relationships. Dont sell your customers products they dont need Be upfront about products that would be a waste of their hard-earned money. Make their best interests your focus in approaching clients with your services. This tip is part of a larger philosophy of moving away from seeing a client as an immediate sale and moving toward building a long-term relationship. Deliver consistent service Mr. Krasnow knows that clients come to expect what they have experienced with your services in the past. Align yourself with a clearly defined mission, set of goals and level of commitment and ensure that clients receive the same level of care by delivering consistently high-quality service, time and time again. Find thoughtful ways to show you care Just showing up for your clients because you genuinely care about them is a sure way to solidify your connection with them. So send out birthday cards. Make a donation to a charity in your clients name, Mr. Krasnow suggests. Get to know each of your clients and show genuine interest in their lives. Remember details and ask about their families and lives. Create an emotional connection any chance you are able. Check in even when you have nothing to sell them Clients love to know you care about them beyond the sale of services. Do reach out to your clients from time to time and check in with them to see how they are doing. Dont forget about your existing clients, even when your business is booming with new ones Clients can tell when theyre on the back burner. Nobody wants to feel like a third wheel, certainly not your trusted clients, says Mr. Krasnow. Keep that connection strong and nurture it every step of the way by staying in clear communication with all of your clients. Resist going on autopilot Even if you have your sales technique down pat, find a way to actively engage with every client. Clients can sense if youre phoning it in. Try to step into the shoes of your client each time you have a meeting, Mr. Krasnow says. Remember that you are striving to improve their lives. If you make a mistake, apologize and fix the problem immediately In most cases, customers arent interested in holding grudges they want to forgive and forget. The best way to smooth things over when youve messed up is to make a heartfelt apology and then make it right. If your business is anything less than thriving, you should first and foremost examine your relationship with your clients, Mr. Krasnow concludes. The truth is, you are far more in control of your brands growth than you give yourself credit for. Thats why its so important to take true ownership of the connection you build with your clients. Youll be amazed how much your deeper commitment to them will pay off in the long run. Before joining Northwestern Mutual, Paul Krasnow suffered a financially devastating bankruptcy with a line of clothing stores he owned. Today he regularly speaks for multiple life associations in the U.S. and gives seminars for law firms and CPA firms in the Southern California area. For more information, visit www.paulgkrasnow.com. The Success Code: A Guide for Achieving Your Personal Best in Business and Life (J&K Publishing) is available from Amazon.would owe around $44,000. But even scarier is the fact that the majority of people around the world live in poverty with no savings and income of a few dollars a day. Clearly, these people could not be counted on to pay back this huge debt burden. So instead, if you were to ask only people in first world countries to pay back this debt, the burden would be about $290,000 per person. Where did this debt come from? Interest rates have been so low for the past several years that individuals, corporations and governments everywhere have eagerly borrowed this cheap money. And it is not just borrowers in rich countries that have embraced this trend. With investors clamoring for higher yields, even riskier borrowers have been able to access capital. In fact, the largest increase in borrowings on a percentage basis was countries like Argentina, Nigeria, Turkey and China. However, developed counties contributed to the greatest dollar increase in overall debt. Most of these countries now have a debt to overall GDP ratio of over 300 percent. That means that if every dollar of output from these countries goes to paying off debt, it would still take three years to pay back its creditors. These debt levels should be a great concern to investors. While there is significant publicity around rising government debt levels, this only makes up around one-third of all debt outstanding. Corporate and personal debt make up a majority of loans and these funds also must be paid back as they mature. And with interest rates expected to rise over the next several years, this problem will only become greater. As an investor, I would look closely at a potential investment targets balance sheet and only invest in a company that can survive in a higher rate environment. I would also look for investments that would not be hit hard in another banking crisis or environment where people are cut off from credit. Defensive stocks and consumer staples companies would be examples of this. While I dont think a debt crisis is just around the corner, I definitely think it is something that we all must keep an eye out for.

A16 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY ANTIQUESA Tiffany lamp is the ultimate antique item Mention Tiffany and collectors may think of the very different things made by Louis Comfort Tiffany. He was so talented that it is almost impossible to know everything he did. He was a popular designer and creator of glass, pottery, jewelry, windows, lamps and even houses, rooms and gardens for many years, then fell out of favor less than 10 years after he died. But today, everything he did is back in style. Charles Lewis Tiffany, Louis Tiffanys father, started a jewelry store in 1837 that still is in business with the name Tiffany & Company. Louis Comfort Tiffany (18481933) started his own business in 1879 and named it Louis Comfort Tiffany and Associated American Artists (1879-1902). He also was a decorator for his fathers company in the early 1900s. The name was changed to Tiffany Studios after his father died in 1902, and he became vice president. L.C. Tiffany usually signed his name on his famous iridescent glass instead of the Tiffany Studios company name. He also signed his name on his paintings and sketches. Todays collectors and art buyers want anything with any of the many Tiffany marks, and some like the best lamps sell for over $100,000. The record price for a Tiffany lamp is $2,807,500. Q: At an antiques show in Pennsylvania, I saw a small quilt that was labeled a privy bag. Of course I know what a privy is, but Ive never heard of a fancy bag used to hold toilet paper in an outhouse. I have a bet with my husband that it is a dealers joke term. A: You lose. There are references online dating back to 2010 for books and exhibits in Pennsylv ania that feature quilted privy bags made to hold toilet paper. Some examples were at a recent show and one was priced $995. There are other kinds, some embroidered, some from fancy fabric and some just reusable cloth food sacks. The quilted ones have almost all been reported from the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, area. Privy toilet paper often was pages of the old Sears and Roebuck catalog, or squares of newsprint that were stored on a large nail. A decorative holder was crocheted in the 1920s-s from directions in some sewing magazines. A full, round, colorful crocheted skirt was made to fit a small doll. The legs of the doll were stuffed into the cardboard center and the skirt covered the paper. It was kept near the seating area. Few outhouses in the United States today are left in camping and hiking areas. The parks furnish a portable biodegradable kit that is carried out of the park at the end of the hike. Q: I think I have a Collier Holland No. 561 planter. The planter is oval, slightly bulbous and has a rolled rim. It looks like the Collier pattern made by Gouda pottery, but it does not say Gouda. Other markings on the bottom are two diamonds, one above the other, and a stylized house. Have you come across anything like this? A: Gouda pottery is popular with collectors. Gouda, Holland, has been a pottery center since the 17th century. And Gouda is the generic name for pottery made in several factories there. Some early Gouda items are marked with only a pattern name, or a pattern name and a number, and with or without the word Gouda. The Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland or PZH factory was founded in Gouda in 1897. In about 1910, the company developed a new process to make matte glazed pottery. Your planter has a version of the famous PZH the little house that represents the Gate of Lazarus, once an impressive stone doorway of the leper infirmary in Gouda. The two diamonds, tip to tip, are the date mark for 1923. Gouda planters of this era sell for about $125 to $250. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Julia auction in Maine. colo r f u l c r a w r EARL ON CARSBuying a car when you have bad creditThere are fewer things more sensitive or embarrassing than having to share your personal credit problems with a stranger. Having credit problems can also put many buyers in a weakened and defensive position when buying a car. Many people with bad, or too little credit feel like the car dealer is somehow doing them a favor by selling them a car and getting them financed. Some car dealers will lead you to believe that your credit is worse than it is to put you on the defensive. If they can make you believe that theyre doing you a favor by getting you financed, youre less likely to complain about the price of the car, the interest rate, and even the type of car you buy. Make no mistake about it. A car dealer is probably making more money selling a car to a person with bad credit than one with good credit. If you have a credit problem, go about buying a car with the same care and due diligence as if you had the very best credit. Shop and compare your financing, your interest rate, and your trade-in allowance. Get at least three quotes on each of these. Lenders who specialize in lending to those with bad credit are known as special finance lenders. Many of these lenders charge the dealer a large upfront fee, as much as $2,500. Legally, the dealer is not supposed to add this fee to the price of the car you buy but, in the real world, the price of the car is usually higher as the result of this fee. Dealers also add high-priced but worthless warranties to the price of the cars with the excuse that the lender requires it. This is a lie: Its illegal for lenders to require a warranty to finance a car. In addition to an upfront fee, the interest rates are very high from special finance lenders. Because they anticipate a much higher amount of repossession losses, they must make more on each transaction. Dont automatically accept a dealers opinion that you must finance through such a lender. There are many conventional banks, credit unions and auto manufacturer lenders these days that loan to people with bad credit. Their interest rates are lower and they dont charge large upfront fees. There is much fraud in special finance lending. Credit applications are falsified to show more time on the job, higher incomes, etc. W-2 forms and check stubs are counterfeited. Buyers orders show accessories and equipment that do not really exist on the car. Hold checks or promissory notes are misrepresented as cash down payment. Co-signers signatures are forged. Confederates pose as employers, answering cell phones or pay phones to verify employment. These falsifications are performed by finance managers, salesmen, brokers for special finance lenders (who are paid on commission) and the customers themselves. If you sign a credit application, be sure that you know all the information on that application is accurate. Be sure that you understand and agree to all parts of the transaction including down payments, accessories on the car, etc. Never be a party to falsifying information to a lender to obtain a loan. This is a federal crime. Advertisements aimed at people with bad credit usually exaggerate with claims like, We finance everyone, Wanted, good people with bad credit, No credit, no problem, and, my favorite, No credit application refused (it doesnt say your loan wont be refused, just your application). My advice is to ignore these kinds of ads and these kinds of dealers. Their strategy is to take advantage of people with bad credit who they believe will buy any car, pay any amount of interest, and any profit to the dealers if the dealer can get them a loan. It is common practice in Florida to encourage the car buyer to drive the car home immediately upon signing all the papers. In some states like New York this is not permitted until the car has been registered with the state in the new owners name. The reason for this immediate delivery (commonly referred to as the spot delivery) is to discourage and possibly even prevent the buyer from changing his mind. Taking possession of the car is a legal consideration that makes the purchase more binding. I recommend that you not rush the purchase or the delivery. For one thing, you want to be sure that the car is exactly the way you want it clean inside and out, all the accessories properly installed, no dings, dents or scratches, and that you have a complete understanding of how to operate all the features of the vehicle. More important than anything ab ove, is to be sure the car does not have an outstanding safety recall from the manufacturer. Independent used car dealers, especially those who specialize in folks with bad credit, have become the home for dangerous used cars with unfixed safety recalls. Many new car dealers, like the AutoNation stores, wholesale all cars with unfixed Takata airbag recalls. These cars are bought at auction by used car dealers like DriveTime, OffLeaseOnly. com, CarMax and thousands of others smaller used car dealers. These cars are retailed to people with bad credit who dont ask the right questions because they are grateful to find financing. Always check the VIN of the used car you buy at www.safecar.com. I mention the risk of the spot delivery in this column on buying a car with bad credit because it can be especially harmful to someone whose credit is denied after the car has been delivered. You will most likely be required to sign a Rescission Agreement before you drive the car home. This is a quasi-legal document which requires you to return the car if your credit is denied. You will probably be told that your credit will be approved, but sometimes the dealer is wrong. The rescission agreement will have a charge for time and mileage that you have put on the car you are driving. Usually this is a very high charge from 25 cents per mile plus $50 per day and higher. It can take weeks for a special finance lender to rule on a credit application. If your credit is denied you could owe the dealer thousands of dollars, which the down payment you made might not even cover. As frightening as all the above may sound, the one single thing you can do to prevent bad things from happening when you purchase a car is to choose your car dealer very carefully. How long has he been in business? What is his track record with the Better Business Bureau, the County Office for Consumer Affairs, and the Florida Attorney Generals Office? Ask friends, neighbors, or relatives who have dealt with this car dealer what their experiences have been like. Choosing a good dealer with integrity will resolve 95 percent of all your concerns. earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474

More than 1,100 exhibitors displayed toys, beds, food and more last month at the Global Pet Expo, and we walked every single aisle more than once to make our picks of the cool, the comfortable, the innovative: the products that dog and cat owners will want to bring home to make their pets lives more enjoyable or their own lives easier. Here are our top nine picks. 1. Be ready for anything on a walk with the Compleash, which combines a nylon leash, a built-in 10-ounce capped water flask, and two stackable bowls that can hold food, treats or personal items such as cash, credit cards or keys. The containers are part of the leash handle, and a waste bag dispenser can be attached to the leash as well. (MSRP $24.99; sitstaygo.com) 2. Snake on a stick? The Elegant Snake cat toy by Be One Breed makes a crinkly sound when your cat pounces on it, and the handle allows you to wriggle it in a lifelike manner. Bonus: Its filled with catnip. (MSRP $5.99; beonebreed.com) 3. Make your dog a treat master with Planet Dogs GuRu interactive toy. Insert treats into five different openings and let your dog have at it.

The Lilly Brush promises to pick up pet hair with just a few swipes across clothing, upholstery, rugs and more. No peeling off tape; just rinse and reuse. (From $12.95; lillybrush.com) 5. To help your anxious dog stay occupied while youre running errands or busy around the house, sprea d peanut b utter, squeeze cheese or scoop canned food on the nubbly LickiMat from Hyper Pet, freeze it to make the treat last even longer, and set it out. Your dog can get in his licks and maintain his interest for a long time. (From $5.99; hyper-pet.com) 6.

Put your poop bag inside and drive away from the beach or hiking trail stink-free until you can dump your dogs waste into a proper receptacle. (MSRP $20; kurgo.com)8. If your aging cat is having accidents outside the litter box, it might be too difficult for her to get in and out of. The Kitty Go Here litter box, with its low entrance, is easy for cats of all ages and abilities to navigate, especially if they have arthritic joints or other health issues that inhibit their mobility.

BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@ oridaweekly.comRosemary Avenue is getting a tattoo! Its called a road tattoo and artist Steed Taylor has painted more than 45 of them around the world. His newest work is taking shape in the shadow of CityPlace in West Palm Beach as part of its ongoing reinvention. Im captivated by roads, and the idea of using a familiar public space for art, Mr. Taylor said. These graphic artworks have graced roadways in the quiet New England countryside and in the middle of the hippest city in the world. People love these road murals for breaking up the monotony of blacktop. Thomas Steed Taylor Steed is a family name from his mothers side was formally educated at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he earned a BA in English and studio art, then at American University in Washington, where he earned an MBA in marketing. Finally, he trained at the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture, but most of what he knows he learned, well, on the road. Roads have meaning, Mr. Taylor said. Many people have a strong emotional connection to the strips of concrete that connect us. Roads are a huge part of American culture, he said. Imagine the road to Grandmas house, or the street where you grew up. That was your street. Consider all the songs and poems about roads. There are more than a few of those. Its that emotional connection Mr. Taylor is trying to capture, and that message of connection is in tune with what the people responsible for recreating CityPlace want. Its also at the heart of the Art in Public Places initiative thats helping to bring more art to the city. The emotional connection to art in a city is essential, said Gopal Rajegowda, a senior VP at Related Companies, which oversees every aspect of the development, management, finance, sales and marketing of its West Palm Beach properties, including CityPlace.

Theyre in the bag scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Grandma was proud of her shell handbag. Shed taken a class in the early 1960s at the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers and had learned the raw beginnings of coquillage, or shell art, gluing bits of treasure heaved from the sea onto the fabric panel that formed the side of a pocketbook she carried for years. It was a white wicker purse with clear plastic that covered the shells, as I recall. It was, oh, so distinctly Florida. When that handbag finally wore out, she carefully cut away the shell panel and tacked it to a wicker bag she kept the rest of her life. It seemed every region had bespoke purses back in the day. Of course, Nantucket baskets remain popular (and valuable). But remember the other bags? In the later 1960s and 1970s, decoupage and painted purses came into vogue. Annie Laurie (yes, that really was her name) created handpainted and decoupage wooden purses in the Palm Beaches. Her purses remain popular with collectors and Palm Beachers who love a touch of nostalgia. Others may well remember the CaroNan baskets that seemingly were everywhere from the mid-1960s through the early s. The purses, created by Carolyn McDaniel and Nancy Steele of Jackson, Miss., bore simple motifs of colorful townhouses they handpainted around the sides of baskets made in Vermont. They localized them, painting the names of the boutiques that sold the purses onto the storefronts and other buildings, and adding decoupage elements that read France, Fabulous, Palm Beach and other locales. At the height of their popularity, Caro-Nan was selling 5,000 bags a month. I remember seeing the bags at boutiques along Naples Fifth Avenue South, as well as along tony St. Armands in Sarasota. The ladies who created the bags are now in their 80s, according to an interview they did a couple of years ago with the Jackson Clarion-Ledger. In that interview, they described how the purses also could be used as seats at sporting events, and remembered how children would perch atop the purses in pews for better views at church. The purses certainly speak to their time and to mine. Bought: Smile y W ile y Breast Cancer Foundation Thrift Store, 501 Alternate A1A, Jupiter; 561-632-8631 or www. smileywiley.org. Paid: $12 The Skinny: I remember seeing these bags when I was a boy I thought it was so cool that a purse listed shops in towns I knew. Davids Fifth Avenue actually was along Worth Avenue, near Via Mizner, in Palm Beach. This purse is in good shape, considering its half-century or so of existence. Its quilted crimson calico lining offers an added touch of wit and whimsy. And, yes, thats a 1967 penny glued to its top. Im sure its just for luck. We all can use that.

Theatre Lab plans premiere of Cuban Courage at FAUIts a tale thats been told through time. A family must decide to send a child away to keep him safe from an oppressive regime. Its a story being told in the musical Cuban Courage. Theatre Lab, the professional resident company of Florida Atlantic Universitys Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters, will present Cuban Courage, a world premiere by Mark Walter Braswell, on May 11 and May 12. The story is of a Cuban couples difficult decision in 1961 to send their only son, Carlos, alone to Miami to keep him safe and free from Communist indoctrination. Imagine a boy being placed on a plane in Havana, bound for Miami, and his parents staying behind. Imagine that child arriving not knowing anyone in this new country or its language. And imagine this departure taking place as the revolutionaries in Cuba are establishing a Communist government and rapidly restricting travel and personal freedom. These events come to life in Cuban Courage, which is based on the true story of the child exodus called Operation Pedro Pan. In that secret plan, more than 14,000 children were flown without their parents from Havana to Miami between December 1960 and October 1962. Mr. Braswell first learned of this historical event more than 15 years ago, when a friend in Washington, D.C., shared that he was one of thousands of children who fled from Cuba in the Operation Pedro Pan exodus. In sharing the story, Lari told me about la pecera, the glassed-in area at the Havana airport designed to separate parents from their children waiting to depart, Mr. Braswell said. I couldnt imagine the anguish this must have caused those families. That moment of the story had a big impact on me. After writing another historically based musical, Mr. Braswell decided to learn more about Operation Pedro Pan and soon felt compelled to write a dramatized version of it for the stage. In 2013, Mr. Braswell moved to Miami, where he conducted research and personal interviews, as well as later showcased songs from the musical. I wanted to give an idea through my characters of what they went through, he said. As I learned of the sacrifices these families made in order to protect their children, I quickly realized that this story was actually one of courage, Cuban courage. In the musical, although Carlos adjusts to camp life in Florida and then to his foster family in Iowa, the painful memories of his exodus haunt him. He eventually reconnects with his past and embraces his future. The play will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 11, and Saturday, May 12 at the Heckscher Stage in Parliament Hall, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. Tickets are $20 and there is free parking in Garage II, adjacent to Parliament Hall. Tickets can be purchased at www.fauevents.com or by calling 561297-6124.

Kid and dog friendly. Rain or Shine.www.singerislandgreenmarket.com Grand Opening residents, and we believe this collaborative public artwork has the potential to unite our residents, to create something ambitious with both meaning and beauty. Mr. Taylor says his painting has a lot in common with someone getting inked. In the same way people mark their bodies, were marking the road with a commemorative artwork. The basic design is a long strip of simple knots combined with local flowers, but the highlight of the design will be the incorporation of the names of people who have protected and supported the unique character of West Palm Beach. Additional elements include musical notes of the jazz standard Round Midnight, a nod to Sunset Lounge and its unique history. Our goal is to call attention to the city, Mr. Taylor said, emphasizing the power of unity and the community. The mural will take Mr. Taylor about 16 days of painting with a crew of 18 and a bundle of volunteers to complete. Taylors tattoo is affectionately called genii loci, which is Latin for the protective spirits of a place. Mr. Taylors work takes hours of painstaking planning, as he maps out the design using a grid system to go from a tiny plan to a huge diagram that breaks the painting into pieces. They use a special traffic paint that dries quickly and wont peel. It hardens up in about six hours, so any road closures will be minor. The final road mural will be about 1.2 miles long, stretching from CityPlace north on Rosemary to 11th Street. Mr. Taylor thinks genii loci is his 48th tattoo, including one he painted in the rolling hills of Tennessee and another he painted in Beijing for the Olympics. That one was a challenge: It had Chinese characters that were readable in both directions. Compared to others, Mr. Taylor said, This piece is huge; the largest Ive ever made and maybe the largest for a road ever. It wasnt cheap. The mural will cost about $260,000 to complete. The earnest artist is earning the fee. Hes giving genii loci 100 percent of his attention, he says, because he feels as though hes been entrusted with an important responsibility. One thing that touches me is that I was invited to do this work here, to work with the people who want me to help them highlight their city, Taylor said. He said it gives him a sense of fullness. Painting has just begun, and visitors are encouraged to stop by and see whats happening, but remember Rosemary Avenue will be closed to traffic off and on for about two weeks. Planners hope that Rosemary will provide a connection between tony CityPlace and the less-affluent area north of downtown, which is going through a renovation of its own. Theres only one thing Taylors concerned about: Rain. That could cause problems. Welcome to South Florida, Steed.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 19-25, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYphilanthropist approached the subject that set her apart among her contemporaries. The exhibition the first since her death in 1942 showcases about 45 of her wartime sculptures, classical works and drawings. A soldier wraps his arm around the neck of his loved one in Home Again. From the way they look at each other, and the cane aiding his balance, we can deduce it has been a long, arduous wait for this reunion to take place. But in this moment, only the simple happiness that comes from being together and alive reigns. Nothing else matters. The wounded soldier featured in His Last Charge is not as lucky. Whitney captures the dramatic moment his body reacts to the agonizing pain caused by the bullet. His knees already have begun to bend. His pose suggests a quick death. The same cannot be said for the moribund soldier featured in the Washington Heights and Inwood Memorial model. Two of his colleagues are trying to get him to safety but struggle with keeping him alert. The artists experiences after founding a hospital for wounded soldiers outside Paris serve as inspiration for the composition of the bronze war memorial dedicated in 1922. Spirit of the Red Cross features a caregiver standing between an aviator and an injured soldier still recovering. Her arm stretched over the injured man suggests she is still watching after him and speaks to her nurturing nature and sense of duty. The three-figure piece from 1920 honors the role of nurses in times of war. Whitney had a gift and the resources to explore it. Her wealth allowed her to transform her clay designs into stone and bronze. Her immediate struggle was of a different nature but equally fatal to those with an artistic spirit. The need for acceptance, for being taken seriously, comes through in one of her quotes from 1919: It is all right for a poor struggling artist to seek out a place of seclusion where he can have his north light. But let a woman who does not have to work for her livelihood take a studio to do the work in which she is most intensely interested and she is greeted by a chorus of horror-stricken voices, a knowing lifting of the eyebrows, or a twist of the mouth that is equally expressive. Her strong determination seems projected unto some of the works. In The 102nd Engineers (aka In The Trenches), a man digs the trenches that later would protect the troops. His focus and physical commitment demonstrate serious resolve to getting the job done. Another soldier refuses to leave his assignment in At His Post, despite relying on a stick for support. The Whitney Museum of American Art founder had given birth to three children when she produced most of the sculptures on view. Rather than let guilt or judgment crush her spirit, she went on to produce evocative memorials and public monuments, such as the Titanic Memorial in Washington, D.C., and the A.E.F. (American Expeditionary Forces) Memorial, which paid tribute to the American troops who landed in SaintNazaire, France in 1917. Casts from both are included in the exhibition, as well as her nurse uniform from her service during World War I. To deny the highly expressive works our serious attention simply because their author got plenty in her lifetime would be a disservice. Imagine the pieces came, instead, from the hands of a poor, starving artist who touched and felt misfortune up close. For such an artist, molding a despaired face, giving shape to a blind mans eyes, would have come easily, more naturally. It would have hit close to home. The most striking notion on display in Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney: Sculpture is that the sculptor seemingly had no obligation or need to create these tender scenes and few personal experiences to draw from. Robert Henris vivid portrait of her hangs near the entrance and conveys her unapologetic defiance and forward-thinking stance. I have no cause to complain; I should not, perhaps, be doing the work that I am doing today if it were not for the battle I had to fight to show that I was not merely amusing myself, reads another one of her quotes from 1919. Grammy awards (including three for Producer of the Year), an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe and three Academy Award nominations for Best Original Song. He has also earned the reputation as a purveyor of new talent, having played a key role in the career launches of Celine Dion, Josh Groban and Michael Bubl, to name a few. In addition, he created hit songs for music stars Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Andrea Bocelli, Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Michael Bolton, Seal, Chaka Khan, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Chicago, Hall & Oates, Brandy, N Sync, Boz Scaggs and Gloria Estefan. About 10 years ago, Mr. Foster added a new dimension to his rsum performer. He hosted Hitman David Foster & Friends, two televised concert events in Las Vegas, which subsequently aired on PBS. I love public television, which is a great place for me, the kind of music I make and the kind of people I work with, he said. I hoped that I might launch a tour of some form of that show, showcasing the songs I was involved in writing-wise, producing-wise or both. That show evolved into An Intimate Evening with David Foster Hitman Tour, which Mr. Foster said includes such songs as St. Elmos Fire, You Raise Me Up, All By Myself, Unforgettable, Hallelujah and a medley from The Bodyguard. He insisted his new role of performer came naturally. I performed when I was a kid, he said. I was in a band, toured a little bit and I liked it. And I had a hit in 1985 with St. Elmos Fire, which was an instrumental with my name on it, versus all the singers Ive produced. Kenny Loggins invited me on stage to play it and that was quite a feeling. Originally from Vancouver, British Columbia, Mr. Foster now calls Los Angeles his home. His early musical influences ranged from classical music to the Beatles. I was a classical nerd and took lessons in that music which, of course, paid off, he said. But when the Beatles came along, that really changed my life. I heard pop music and decided thats exactly what I wanted to be doing. I was also a jazz nerd and although I was not a great jazz pianist, I loved Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Keith Jarrett and Herbie Hancock and tried to emulate them. As for the songwriting, Mr. Foster said it developed over time and melodies never sprang from a beautiful sunset or an explosive revelation in the middle of the night. Its a job, he said. My writing came as a result of producing records and working with artists who needed another song for their record. As a good piano player, that worked out well. So my writing has always been co-writing. Mr. Foster has co-written mostly providing the melody with some of the best in the business: Mariah Carey, Kenny Loggins, Peter Cetera, Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, Paul Anka, Lionel Richie, Richard Marx, Al Jarreau, Bill Withers and Madonna, among others. Collaboration is a little like a marriage, he said. Youre living together and trying to find your way. It can be a little awkward at times, but when you click, it flows and its amazing. An Intimate Evening with David Foster, he added, tells his own story with help from singers Fernando Varela, Shelea Frazier and Pia Toscano. I take the audience on a journey from when I played with Chuck Berry at age 16 to my first Grammy to the failures, which are many, he laughed. From there its on to producing Natalie Coles Unforgettable, co-writing with Peter Cetera and for his group Chicago, The Bodyguard, Celine Dion. All of these various punch points in my career, with performances from Fernando, Shelea and Pia that are so compelling that the audience will really enjoy the songs.

NoAt some point in our lives, most of us have played Truth or Dare. The rules are simple: Choose Truth or Dare, then either tell the truth or complete the dare. In real life, not fulfilling your obligation will cost you nothing except perhaps some fun points from your friends. In Truth or Dare, it will cost you your life. Its a clever premise, and being a thriller from Blumhouse Productions, the studio behind Get Out, theres plenty to hope for here. Perhaps this optimism is what makes the lackluster movie all the more frustrating. The story is thin, the dialog is lazy, the acting doesnt really matter. This is by-thenumbers mediocrity for which the best compliment is that its only rated PG-13; we dont need to see the grisly gruesomeness thats implied and, thankfully, the worst of it is left off screen. College seniors, spring break. Olivia (Lucy Hale) and Markie (Violett Beane) are best friends, so Markie tricks her into going to Mexico for the week. Markies boyfriend Lucas (Tyler Posey) joins them, as do party girl Penelope (Sophia Ali), her boyfriend Tyson (Nolan Gerard Funk) and their gay friend Brad (Hayden Szeto). Moron acquaintance Ronnie (Sam Lerner) bumps into them in Mexico, and Carter (Landon Liboiron), a random stranger at the bar who sticks up for Olivia, rounds out the octet. With the bar closing and spring break nearly over, Carter insists he knows of an after party. He takes them to an abandoned church in the middle of nowhere and kindly suggests playing Truth or Dare. The game is as awkward as usual, until Carter ruins it by getting weird: Tell the truth or you die, do the dare or you die, he says before running off. Of course, there wouldnt be a movie if his foreboding warning didnt have credence. Figuring out how to survive long enough to beat the game is intriguing for a while. Then the story behind exactly how this is all happening comes, and its a bit weak. This happens when you have four credited screenwriters (more than two is always a bad sign). A little more ingenuity wouldve gone a long way here. Some of the dares (emphasis on some) are reasonably creative. The best is when burgeoning alcoholic Penelope is dared to walk along the edge of a three-story roof until she finishes a bottle of vodka. If only director Jeff Wadlow instilled more imagination into the rest of the film. Instead we get random individuals morphing into Joker smiles and freaking people out. It gets old after a while. Truth or Dare deserves credit for this, though: At one point, Lucas advises to only choose truth. This makes sense because while the truth can hurt, at least it wont kill you. This means college seniors actually use logic and do something smart. Unfortunately, though, it doesnt work out thanks to a plot contrivance that manifests shortly thereafter and thats fine, because not much else works out in this movie either. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The cast played a real game of Truth or Dare during lming; the only central cast member not to play was Hale, who chose to go to bed instead.Did you know? FILM CAPSULESBeirut (Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris) A U.S. diplomat (Hamm) in early s Beirut must negotiate the release of an old friend whos been taken hostage by terrorists. Its laborious to the point that you stop caring whether the hostage, the diplomat or anyone else comes out alive. Rated R.Ready Player One (Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn) In 2045, people use avatars to search for an Easter Egg in a virtual reality world. The visuals and action are great in director Steven Spielbergs latest, but its the retro pop culture references, along with the classic rock soundtrack, that make this an absolute blast. Rated PG-13.Chappaquiddick (Jason Clarke, Kate Mara, Ed Helms) In July 1969, Senator Ted Kennedy (Clarke) drives his car off a small bridge, killing passenger Mary Jo Kopechne (Mara) and putting his political career in turmoil. What happened, how and the cover-up that followed makes for compelling drama that presents the information as objectively as possible. Based on a true story. Rated PG-13.The Death of Stalin (Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey Tambor) Following his death in March 1953, Josef Stalins underlings scheme for control of Russia in this highly effective farce. Its silly, absurd and biting and as darkly, morbidly funny as it aspires to be. Rated R.

The Price: $15.99 The Details: If theres one thing for which the West Palm Beach area is lucky, it is this: There are a few good Indian restaurants. Aroma, fairly recently opened at Village Commons, is one. Taste of India, on Okeechobee Boulevard, is another favorite. Indus also has its moments. This chicken vindaloo was packed with tender bits of chicken and potato and served in a fiery tomato sauce made with chilis and filled with liberal doses of turmeric, cumin, mustard and other spices. That was tasty, but service was inconsistent, with mixups of beer and food orders. Ill be back, but I hope for more consistency in my experience.

Baldinos brings in the rolls (Moribito brand) from up North the most critical part. Then they serve the thin-sliced steak and melted yellow cheese on it to make The Original.

Head to South County for this one. Its a trek, and tricky to find (its in the Boca Raton Plaza Hotel), but if youre headed that way, the authenticity of all the food here makes it worth the trip. Its a great Philly cheesesteak, with the most tender beef possible nothing chewy here. Onions, green and red peppers and melted cheese on the buttered toasty roll is the thing. (Since youre here, dont miss their fabulous chili or any of their homestyle foods.) Jan Norris FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEGood Samaritan Hospital is stepping up to a new plate. The West Palm Beach hospital is adding a vegan menu to its food options for patients. Its about time, says Dr. David Dodson, who helped launch the total plant-based program with the nutrition and administrative teams at Good Sam. People should go to hospitals to get healthy. Dr. Dodson, a West Palm Beach internist and former chief of staff at the hospital, was making rounds one lunchtime when he noticed one of his cardiac patients eating a burger. He had come in with a heart attack and had a stent. And he was eating a cheeseburger. I said, Somethings wrong here. I looked at the menu he had, and every day it was meat: pork chops, Salisbury steak, burgers that wasnt right, he said. He spoke with the staff nutritionists and suggested vegan menu items that could be substituted for meat-based ones. Vegan foods are those that are strictly plant based; no animal fats or dairy are used in preparation of the dish. The hospital board had to approve the new menu, and did so, along with the medical team. A black bean burger is now an option. Healthy snacks include hummus with pretzels and vegetables. Breakfast cereals are oatmeal and cream of wheat, with fruits and whole grain bread. Theres a stuffed tomato, Malibu quinoa salad, Greek salad and an Asian spring roll on the menu as well. The full menu is still being developed, but is set to roll out this month. He has high praise for the kitchen staff and nutritionists. Theyve worked really hard to create good food, he said. It wont help if its not tasty and patients wont eat it. Education is key, however, to both acceptance of the diet while in the hospital, and follow-up once the patient goes home. Vegan diet demonstrations are planned. Yes, its a change, but if they dont change their diets, theyre going to come back in with another heart attack, he said. Statins can reduce the chance of a second heart attack by lowering cholesterol, but eliminating the cholesterol to start with is the answer, he said. Talking to the staff at the hospital, he says everyone including the doctors and nurses are excited about it. Dr. Dodson follows the vegan diet hes recommended for his own patients for years. My wife and I read The China Study six years ago and that was it for us. The 2005 book details a long-term study that purports to show scientific correlation between an animal-based diet and typical Western diseases heart disease, diabetes and certain p revalent cancers. You eat a typical Western diet, you get typical Western diseases, the doctor said. Hes happy to see vegetarian and the stricter vegan diets become more mainstream, though he knows there will still be resistance, even within the hospital administration. All-around education is needed, he said. The hospitals are very sensitive to patient surveys. Theyre concerned that if a patient doesnt like the food, theyll give them a bad score. Thats where the education comes in, he said. He and administrators believe Good Samaritan is the first hospital in the state to implement a vegan menu, and one of only a few around the country. This is a good, positive step theyre taking, he said. I figured if the hospital would put their seal of approval on it, it will gain legitimacy. If you think about it, it makes sense: Serve healthy food for health.In briefNext year, the South Florida Garlic Fest turns 20.

Then its about working with you to help get you back to your normal life.Back & Spine Surgery | Total Joint Surgery Sports Medicine | Orthopedic Rehab TURN YOUR BACK ON PAIN High blood pressure and stroke PALM BEACH GARDENS MEDICAL CENTERMay is quickly approaching and so is Stroke Awareness Month. Approximately every 40 seconds someone in the United States has a stroke and roughly every four minutes someone dies of a stroke. It causes about one in 20 deaths annually making it the fifth-leading cause of death and the primary reason for long-term disability. So if you could take steps now to lower your risk of having a stroke, you would, wouldnt you? Well, you can. First on your list would be to control your blood pressure. The most important risk factor for stroke is high blood pressure, or hypertension. If left untreated, this condition can damage blood vessels throughout the body, causing them to narrow and clog more easily or weaken them so they could burst resulting in internal bleeding. When blood vessels in the brain become blocked or break and then leak blood into the brain, brain cells begin to die and the brain is not able to function properly. In addition to stroke, high blood pressure also can cause other forms of brain damage including dementia and memory loss. Blood pressure is the amount of force exerted by blood against artery walls. It is expressed in two numbers that are measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The first number, or systolic blood pressure, measures the amount of force when the heart beats. The second number, or diastolic blood pressure, measures pressure in the arteries between heartbeats. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg. Prehypertension may be diagnosed if the systolic pressure is between 120 to 139 mmHg or the diastolic pressure is between 80 to 89 mmHg. Blood pressure is considered to be high if systolic pressure is 140 mmHg or higher, or if the diastolic pressure is 90 mmHg or higher, which can also be expressed as 140/90 mmHg. Blood pressure can be controlled by making lifestyle changes or taking medication. Some ways to manage blood pressure include: Reducing salt in foods Eating healthy foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole-grain foods, low-fat or fat-free dairy products, fish, and low-calorie, low-fat snacks Maintaining a healthy body weight Engaging in physical activity on a regular basis by exercising through walking, swimming, riding a bicycle or dancing Limiting alcohol intake to no more than two alcoholic drinks a day for men and one per day for women Not smoking Taking medications as directed by your physician to lower blood pressure Stroke. Aneurysm. Transient ischemic attack. Neurological emergencies can come on hard and fast, often with little warning, and have the potential to leave you severely impaired. When stroke occurs, efficient, expert treatment is necessary to prevent death or disability. You can count on the emergency department at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center to be ready when the worst happens.

He agreed to undergo Dr. Costellos recommended protocol: a series of 18 one-hour treatments spaced over as many weeks as the patient selected. I was quite desperate, so I elected to do six treatments a week for several consecutive weeks. By the fourth treatment, I was surprised to feel a major improvement, the patient said. And by the time I got to the last treatment, the pain was completely gone. I was elated. Its the best Ive felt in a decade. These days, he maintains his miraculous results with a periodic one-hour treatment every few months. This patient has joined the tens of thousands of other Laser Medica patients who have been relieved of their chronic pain via painless, noninvasive therapy that patients describe as like being in a spa for an hour. Laser therapy is a medical procedure that uses highly focused laser light energy to treat pain and inflammation. It works at the cellular level by stimulating the bodys natural healing processes. This highly advanced technology is successful in treating both acute and chronic conditions, which traditional treatment approaches have failed to remedy. The efficacy of the laser-light therapy we offer has been verified by thousands of written reports including one from Harvard University, says Dr. Joseph Costello, a boardcertified chiropractic orthopedist. Its especially good for patients who have bone on bone knee arthritis. Thats because this noninvasive procedure is an actinotherapy, which results in chemical and metabolic changes inside each human cell that come in contact with the high-intensity laser light. Simply said, the lasers accelerate the healing potential of the cell. As Dr. Costello says, Our treatment protocols actually heal human tissue. They often achieve results when other treatments, including surgery fail. This includes, but is not limited to arthritis, back pain, disc herniation, headaches, knee and hip pain, neck pain, peripheral nerve disorders, neuropathy, sciatica, shingles, spinal stenosis and temporomandibular joint dysfunctions. If you are seeking an effective treatment without drugs, surgery and the accompanying side effects, Super Pulsed Robotic Laser Therapy can be a real solution for anyone suffering constant pain.

Sometimes the selfdescription morphs into, I feel tired all the time, and experts say thats when extreme tiredness becomes better known as fatigue. Fatigue, when someone lacks energy and feels exhausted mentally or physically, can negatively impact performance at work, family life and social relationships. Often, it is not a medical issue but one that can be reversed by a lifestyle change. People would be amazed at how much energy theyd have and how much better theyd feel if they treated themselves better, says Dr. Raj Gupta, author of Wellness Center Solution: How Physicians Can Transform Their Practices, Their Income and Their Lives and founder of Soul Focus Wellness Center. We all have busy lives, but there are simple ways to not let your schedule overwhelm you and make your health suffer as a consequence. Stress, Dr. Gupta says, can lead to fatigue symptoms such as a craving for sweets and salty foods, difficulty sleeping and irritability. He suggests five ways to fight fatigue and regain energy: Run on the right fuel A busy lifestyle can lead to fast food or carryout. Therefore, preparation is important, Dr. Gupta says. Your energy and production are directly proportional to how you fuel your body, he says. Always be thinking about what you will be eating later. Ideally, your diet should consist of eating approximately five times a day with a combination of complex carbohydrates fruits and veggies and lean protein. Cut caffeine, add water Research indicates too much caffeine causes fatigue in some people. The stimulation wears off and more caffeine is needed to produce the feelings of energy and clear-headedness. Dr. Gupta recommends cutting back on all things containing caffeine coffee, tea, chocolate, soft drinks. Also, water should be the preferred liquid. A person is recommended to drink half their weight in ounces per day, Dr. Gupta says. You can be dehydrated and not even know it. Stop burning the candle on both ends Dr. Gupta says fatigue is often directly related to sleep deprivation. When you sleep is when most of your healing takes place, Dr. Gupta says. Without enough sleep, your immune system breaks down. Its recommended you get six to eight hours of sleep per night. Get regular exercise Dr. Gupta stresses that no matter how busy people are, they need to make time for exercise on a regular basis, ideally for 20 to 30-minute sessions a minimum of four times per week. Regular exercise helps regulate your mood, makes you sleep more soundly and erases the little mistakes in our diet, Dr. Gupta says. Body adjustments The body can come more alive with a chiropractic alignment that provides proper functioning. Chiropractic adjustments to the spinal column relieve the pressure of a choked or pinched nerve caused by the rotated vertebra, Dr. Gupta says. A chiropractic adjustment increases ones vitality and turns up their energy. He concludes that, Living life with zest, vitality and complete health is easier than you think. By managing these five simple aspects, one can maintain a healthy, fulfilling life. Dr. Raj Gupta (www.drrajgupta. com), who has more than 20 years experience as a chiropractor, is the founder of Soul Focus Wellness Center. He also is the author of Wellness Center Solution: How Physicians Can Transform Their Practices, Their Income and Their Lives, and of the forthcoming book, From Health Club to Health Care: How Gym Owners Can 10X Their Income. He has been featured in US News and World Report Health, Womans World Magazine and The New York Daily News. He has a doctorate in chiropractic from Life University. Surgical expertise sets Jupiter Medical Center apart in cancer care As a surgical oncologist at Jupiter Medical Center, Dr. Shanel Bhagwandin meets people during one of the most challenging times of their lives. That was especially true for Murray Young, who at 90 years old was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Young was referred to Dr. Bhagwandin to determine whether he would be a candidate for surgery. When meeting patients for the first time, Dr. Bhagwandin engages them in the process, making sure they understand their options. They discuss whether the tumor is operable, the possible complications of pancreatic surgery, expectations around the patients recovery, and more. Although not all patients with pancreatic cancer are candidates for surgery, Dr. Bhagwandin found that Youngs tumor was operable. Still, he wanted to make sure that the cancer would not likely spread after surgery, given the aggressive nature of pancreatic cancer. He also wanted to determine whether Young would be able to tolerate the procedure at such an advanced age. As part of the protocol in such cases, Young went through three rounds of chemotherapy, and everything pointed to him being a good candidate for surgery. We gave him the most aggressive chemotherapy regimen up front and he tolerated it everything went fine and that completely shifted the focus, Dr. Bhagwandin said. Hes fit and functional, so there was no reason not to do the procedure and give him the best opportunity for improved survival. The pancreas is situated in the abdominal cavity in a space behind the stomach. It is shaped a bit like a fish with a wide head, a tapering body and a narrow, pointed tail the site of Murrays cancer. Dr. Bhagwandin performed a distal pancreatectomy, which involves removing the tail of the pancreas and the spleen, while leaving the head of the pancreas in place to maintain normal function. The procedure was performed laparoscopically, which results in a shorter hospital stay, less post-operative pain, and minimal scarring when compared to traditional, open surgery without compromising the principles of the cancer operation. Young spent four days in the hospital following surgery and is now recovering at home. Dr. Bhagwandin discusses patient expectations and goals preoperatively and believes discharging patients as soon as it is medically safe enhances their recovery. Young, who now faces several rounds of chemotherapy, is pleased with the results thus far. Everything worked out very nicely, he said. The surgery accomplished everything they wanted, so I cant complain. While Young was a candidate for surgery, Dr. Bhagwandin noted that every case is unique. Some patients may ultimately be better suited for a more invasive procedure or another form of treatment, and cancer care must be individualized. The key is to work closely with our patients and engage them in the process from the onset, Dr. Bhagwandin said. Ultimately, this can motivate patients throughout treatment and increase their odds for a more favorable o utcome. Helping patients achieve a favorable outcome during a challenging illness was a prime motivation for Dr. Bhagwandins decision to pursue a career in surgical oncology. It was during his surgical residency at the University of Illinois that he encountered and treated cancer patients many of them younger than he was at the time. "Their energy and selfless motivation had such a powerful impact on me and ultimately impacted my decision to pursue a career as a surgical oncologist, he said. Today, Dr. Bhagwandin, who is fellowship trained in surgical oncology, is the only board-certified complex general surgical oncologist in Palm Beach, Martin, Indian River and Brevard counties and one of just seven in the state. Dr. Bhagwandin has broadened the gastrointestinal cancer program at Jupiter Medical Center, given his experience and current role as medical director of Surgical Oncology Network Development at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. He is also part of the hospitals multidisciplinary tumor board, a team of specialists who actively collaborate to guide patients through their cancer treatment. The tumor board enables patients to get a second opinion from Mount Sinai without having to go elsewhere; and it enables physicians to leverage one anothers experience to identify innovative treatment options.

Please call our oce today to make an appointment.Phone (561) 575-7875New hope for sufferers of hemorrhoidsMillions of people worldwide suffer from hemorrhoids enlarged, bulging blood vessels in and about the anus and lower rectum. There are two types of hemorrhoids internal and external. External (outside) hemorrhoids develop near the anus and are covered by sensitive skin. If a blood clot develops in one of them, a painful swelling may occur. It bleeds only if it ruptures. Internal (inside) hemorrhoids develop within the anus beneath the lining. Painless bleeding and protrusion during bowel movements are the most common symptoms. However, an internal hemorrhoid may cause severe pain if it protrudes from the anal canal and cannot be pushed back in. The exact cause of hemorrhoids is unknown. Our upright posture forces a great deal of pressure on the rectal veins, causing them to bulge. Contributing factors include aging, constipation, diarrhea, pregnancy, heredity, straining due to poor bowel function, overuse of laxatives and spending long periods of time on the toilet. The tissues supporting the veins stretch and dilate; their walls become thin and bleed. As the stretching and pressure continue, the weakened veins protrude. Symptoms include bleeding, protrusion, anal itching, pain and sensitive lumps. There is no relationship between hemorrhoids and cancer. However, the symptoms of hemorrhoids, particularly bleeding, are similar to those of colorectal cancer. Therefore, it is imperative that all symptoms be investigated by a physician. Mild symptoms can be relieved by increasing fiber in the diet, avoiding excessive straining, taking warm baths and using anesthetic creams. More severe symptoms of internal hemorrhoids may be treated by rubber band ligation, which involves placing a small rubber band over the hemorrhoid, cutting off its blood supply. Several days later, the hemorrhoid and band fall off. The wound heals within 2 weeks. The newest treatment, HET bipolar systems (Hetsystems.com), involves applying high-energy compression to internal hemorrhoids under sedation. It can be done in combination with colonoscopy, and multiple hemorrhoids can be treated in one procedure. External hemorrhoids sometimes become thrombosed develop a clot. They present as a painful perianal lump. Evacuation of the clot, performed under local anesthesia with a small incision, may bring immediate relief. Hemorrhoidectomy, surgical excision, is the best method of permanently removing hemorrhoids. It is necessary: 1) if clots repeatedly form in external hemorrhoids; 2) protruding hemorrhoids cant be reduced; or 3) there is persistent bleeding, especially when ligation fails. Surgery is done under anesthesia and is usually an outpatient procedure. If you are a hemorrhoid sufferer, todays treatment options offer an excellent chance of relief.

She was in elementary school. At age 47, Anderson maintains she hates to sweat and does not feel comfortable in a gym. If you want to know the best way to flip an egg, I can help you, says Anderson, who manages Juno Beach Caf. At a gym, I feel like a fish out of water. When a patron at her restaurant told her about a concierge medical clinic and fitness center that was opening in North Palm Beach, Anderson decided to investigate. She joined BioMetrix in January. I am a creature of habit and my relaxation at the end of the day was to watch my TV shows and eat a bowl of moose tracks ice cream. I got away with it for years. Anderson says. Then I got to a point where I was gaining weight and feeling tired. I knew I needed to do something.

Anderson says while she knew she was out of shape, she was shocked to learn her body fat percentage and the reality of her calorie intake. With the help of the team at BioMetrix, shes changing her life. Anderson is working out twice a week with a trainer. Daily breakfast sandwiches and frapps have been replaced by protein shakes, lean cuts of meat, and vegetables. My husband says he notices a change. My pants are fitting better, and I definitely dont see muffin tops as much as I did, says Anderson. In six weeks, shes lost six pounds and dropped her body fat by more than 4 percent. BioMetrix is also helping Anderson realize that being healthy is a commitment. I feel better about myself. My life has changed because I have a different mindset. BioMetrix is at Crystal Tree Plaza, 1201 U.S. Highway 1, Suite 9, North Palm Beach. 561-629-9000 or www.biometrixlife.com.

Patients are sick and tired of the usual pills, injections and surgeries that not only do not work, but take away from their quality of life. What I have discovered, is a treatment which is painless, free of side eects, and can work when all treatments fail.Joseph A. Costello, DC, DABCO Palm Beach Gardens, FL What were nding, is that the majority of our patients are achieving almost 90 percent relief of their symptoms which is unheard of.
